Welcome to Sherwoodsecrets. We hope you enjoy your visit.

King Richard ‘The Lion heart’ is dead and England suffered greatly in the wake of the crusade. The throne sat vacant, and all of England waited with anticipation for the next King of England to rise. The lands were in turmoil and times were hard. Yet none suffered so greatly as the shire of Nottingham. Their saviour, ‘Robin Hood’ and his most loyal friends have long since died, which left the people of Nottinghamshire to fend for themselves against harsh and cruel Lords. The Sheriffs death was still talked about among the poor folk, the last thing that Robin Hood gave them, their freedom from persecution against the harsh man that ruled Nottingham.

Yet hope remained!

Deep in the heart of Sherwood Forest a secret hid, a secret that bought the people hope once again. Robin Hood may be dead, but his legacy lived on. It was rumored that there remained a few, outlawed and banished, that dwelled within the boughs and strove to keep the legend of Robin Hood alive. Biding their time, preparing for that final battle to free Nottinghamshire once and for all! Only time would tell if ‘Robin Hood’ and everything he stood for lived on in the new generation!

But now, two years on, times were changing. The scent of succession grew strong upon the wind. Rumors were abound that a legitimate heir to the throne had been found. Somewhere in the holy lands a son of the late King Richard dwelled unknown and unknowing of the fate that awaits him. Youth sheltered him from the harsh realities of the world, as a dedicated group of men put every effort into making the boy obscure. But the secret became public and excitement thrummed through the country. Excitement and anger! For there were still those that benefitted greatly from the throne lying empty! Those that had pledged allegiance to the throne of England and its rightful ruler fought bravely against those willing to sacrifice the boy. And those that fought to keep a King on the throne were also those that had fought to keep Nottingham safe. Their Quest was an important one, one that saw the rise of not only Nottingham, but the entire country, and so they abandoned the internal wars that forever waged within the cities and towns of England, leaving them once more open and vulnerable to the harsh justice of the rich and powerful. Towns became ravaged with greed, the poor suffered greatly, and even those nobles with gentle dispositions felt the need to flee for their own safety. However, two years have passed since and those that sought to place the boy upon the throne, to save England, now returned with no head to wear the crown. Was their quest all for naught? Did they sacrifice their home, friends and family on a fool’s errand? Or is the secret of who the Boy King is still at large?

Characters Name: Elrich Von Dien
Gender: Male.
Age:19 years young.
Rank: Captain of the Guard / Guard.

Description; Elrich is slender and muscular, small in stature standing at only 5'9" but he makes up for that with his dexterity and agile nature. His skin is dark, but that's from what seems to be an eternity on his parents' farm; with hair of the darkest black, and eyes of a dazzling hazel color, he's quite the sight for any woman that passes by. Despite the hygiene of the people around him, Elrich manages to keep himself clean, and his teeth, as pure and white as snow. His body is riddled with scars, most of which are on his forearms and chest/abdomen; This man is almost always seen in his makeshift leather armor- a dulled down version of the military traditional as to allow for quicker movement, and more agile strides.

Personality: He's fiery and spirited, when comfortable with his surroundings, otherwise, he's soft spoken, but at all times, harsh. His sense of humor is a bit perverted, and dark, but nevertheless, he's a fun person to be around when the situation arises, which is only when around his best of friends. Now for his general appearance- that would be stern and cruel to those that deserve it, he believes in protecting the innocent, and as such, has many enemies within the corrupt confines of the castle walls. Elrich has already taken the lives of dozens of men, and this has led to a bit of a 'bloodlust' towards those that deserve it, and he seems to be slowly but surely losing his mind.

History: Elrich Von Dien's past is a very simple story: he was born the son of two simple, poor farmers, and lived a traditional life of poverty until the day he turned sixteen, whereupon he became a guard to protect his kingdom- any life would be better than that one, right? His rank steadily increased as it usually does, until one day, around the age of nineteen, when he proved himself in combat (not that he hadn't before) in a fashion that caught the nobles' eye; and now he awaits notice of whether or not he's to become the Captain of the Guard.
