Warlord Aurion Thorismond, born in the frozen north, emigrated to Savoy during the Great Barbarian Invasion of 1311. Served as the first and most celebrated Drill Master of the Savoie Imperial Training Grounds. Fought heroically in the Papist Wars and later in the Italic War where he suffered terrible wounds at the Battle of Agrigento. Died of his wounds months later while convalescing in Provence. Known as much for his ferocity in battle as for his love of the fair ladies of Italy. Many a severed goat head was laid at doorsteps of Ladies throughout Italy, as was the barbarian custom from the old lands, though sadly the sentiment was rarely returned and he lived a solitary life.

Warlord Duncan Hamilton, born in Scotland under the reign of King Bruce, emigrated to Savoy in the winter of of 1312. Joined the Army as a lowly squire, but through his hard-work at the Savoie Imperial Training Grounds soon became one of the most feared warriors in all of Europe. Fought in the Italic War and served various political posts in foreign governments of Rome and Florence for security. His infamous term as Guard Captain of Rome saw him earn worldwide disdain as he oversaw a ruthless series of arrests and confiscation of goods from Italic sympathizers. In November of 1312 he came to the crown of Florence when King Himbertus fell ill for a time and abdicated the throne for a simpler life as Duke of Provence. He ruled Florence along with Lord Meteore Fisherod with an iron hand, and during that time was the force behind the Roman sack of Gwynned In December of 1312 following the end of the Italic War. This nefarious action earned him the moniker "Duncan the Black" which he carried with him for the rest of his life. In June of 1313 he marched North with King James of Savoy to invade England and after the victory abdicated the throne of Florence and emigrated to England. Relations with the English crown soon soured and Duncan left the country to birth revolutions in Poland and later Portugal. Both attempts were utter failures which tarnished his reputation even further. Along with his mercenary group known as the "Iron Fist" he was able to inherit the throne of Savoy thanks to a brief period of improved relations with Savoy's patriarch, King James of England. Duncan fought in the Great Eastern War against the Empire but then retired back to Savoie, once again at odds with his benefactor. With the War won without his taste for blood satisfied, Duncan took his own life in March of 1314 by AEA. His large amassed fortune, rumored to be illegally obtained, had been purposely dumped into Lake Geneva by Duncan, forever to be lost as a final defiance by the man known for all eternity as "Duncan the Black".
