Demigryph Knight of the Knights of the Gold Lion

The Order of the Gold Lion is a famous Knightly Order of the Empire. [1a]

The knights give away much of their wealth but is still able to maintain a small stable of Demigryphs for the Inner Circle. [2a]

Advantages and Disadvantages

As implacable foes, they have the Resolute Advantage but as they keep little wealth for themselves they have the Humility Disadvantage. [3a]

History

A secular Order, the Knights were founded in Araby during the Crusades. A group of disenchanted Knights fled to a small Arabyan village after their army had been severely beaten. Once there, the Knights began to despair of ever returning home. One Knight, Erich von Strommer, took it upon himself to try and restore their confidence. [3a]

To prove the worth of the cause they were fighting for, he set out into the savannah to take the head of a man-eating lion. He stated that should he succeed in this impossible task, it would be a sign they still held Sigmar's favour. Days later he returned, near delirious, carrying the head of a massive lion. The Knights were filled with courage, renamed themselves in honour of the feat, forged out into the desert, and eventually met up with allies. Since then, the Order of the Gold Lion has served the Empire as one of its most loyal Knightly Orders. [3a]
