Known Information

A young lord of House d'Eresse and younger brother to the Baron of Beaucare, Belmont came to Marsilikos. A man of occasionally hot temper, known for a few duels. Also, he was among those investigating the deaths of many Mereliots at Béziers in the year 1310. In the same year, he was married to Gabrielle Delaunay, the Vicomtesse de Rognac and heiress to the Comté Delaunay. After her untimely death in the year 1311 and no issue resulting from the marriage, Belmont Eresse Delaunay returned to his House d'Eresse and after a few months took over the title of Baron de Beaucare from his older brother Gauge.

Background

Born as the third son to a baron of House d'Eresse, it was clear from the start, that Belmont would have to make a name for himself, through deeds and his loyalty to Eisande. Graced with good health and a physique that was enhanced soon by regular sword training, the young man felt a yearning to see more of Terre d'Ange, and then other lands. His father made use of him, as emissary to the Ducal court in Eisande, and then even sent him to the City of Elua once. A time both frustrating and inspiring, as Belmont hardly had enough coin to afford having a taste of the delights offered on Mont Nuit. Inspiring it was, as it brought about contacts to foreign emissaries and cultures, and Belmont soaked up their tales and stories, as well as what they told him of foreign customs and views.

These impressions stirred his willingness to travel to other lands, and so far Belmont has undertaken voyages to Aragonia and La Serenissima, picking up their languages, and deepened these skills through further study. His small book is a permanent companion, into which he sometimes writes his observations and thoughts. At other times, he is a true son of Eisande, indulging in telling stories of his own over a goblet of wine at an inn, or outside by a campfire. He has yet much to learn of the world, and how he can make his mark on history. A loyal subject to the Duchesse de Mereliot, even if he may look a little awkward now and then, when confronted with courtly intrigues and politicking.

irene Sister : Always I seem to worry too much about your safety. Now that you are here in Marsilikos for a longer period of time I shall make sure there won't be further attempts at tainting your name.
gauge Brother : With our oldest brother and our father gone, I'm glad to have you at least still around. Things have changed between us, and certainly for the better.
