The Champion of the Everqueen is the companion and bodyguard of the High Elf Everqueen. [1a]

The position is open to all, both male and female elves, regardless of station or wealth, however the contender must also be skilled in courtliness, poetry, music and dancing as well as in combat so it often went to the wealthy. [1d]

History

The role was created by the second Phoenix King, Bel Shanaar after Astarielle the first Everqueen had been slain by the followers of Chaos. [1a]

In 2273 IC, Tyrion was convinced by his aunt, the head of House Emeraldsea to compete for the position, despite his resevations as she hoped he could both protect the new queen but also influence her in favour of his house. [1b]

Notable

  • First Round: Each particpant proves themselves with sword and shield, winning the leaf shaped bronze amulet given to each contender, the victor returns their opponents broach to the heralds until only one participant and broach is left. [1e]


Quotes

There is more to becoming champion than using a sword. You must be proficient with all weapons and fighting from horseback. You must be able to sing and dance and play the part of the dashing hero. Being champion is as much about looking good as it is about being able to fight and there you have the advantage, my young friend.

~ Prince Iltharis to Tyrion.[1c]
