Crest of Count and Grand Master Myrmex of Family Namykos of Thrax
Lore II Myrmex (RP)
It was at the beginning of Mann, not long after a mortal man named Aeacus passed through the Destruction and called upon the Gods to make the Prophecy of Thrax happen, the revival of the dead Land through his deep commitment of praying and marching in it for months without food and water, inspiring Tyr to give life to the deserted Land and transforming its Ants into Mann.
Aeacus then ruled over the Ant People, them Myrmidon and with their Help, flourished the dead Land of Thrax. The God was in their favour and delighted by Aeacus and his people daily praying, gave its Land high Mountains, deep Grasses and beautiful Forests with strong and deep rooted Woods.
The Myrmidons and Aeacus celebrated, it was a Time for festivities and happiness thus they drunk and ate all they could. Thrax flourished, new Destinies and Bloodlines were to change their fate to embrace the new Life.
After several Generations have passed.
A new child has been born, the grandson of Aeacus. Its name was given by his Mother by a tale of a God whispering her the name of the ancient King of the ant people, Myrmex. Thus the Whisper of the God took the mother’s life and its tale took its form.
And the child rose to become the new Ruler of Thrax, despising the Gods but only two he admired, Achilleus and his companion Lykurgos. Yet they were half mortal and half wolf, their Legend was lost throughout Time, though Achilleus and Lykurgos gained immortality as Guardians through dying for the Protection of their people. They had been inspiring to our Ancestors for a Warrior and Shield Brother seeking more than just a soldier’s death in their Life.
Thus Myrmex believed it right to built a Shrine of his admired invincible Warrior Achilleus and his bloodthirsty Mountain Wolf God Lykurgos to let their Spirits become virtuous and faedin Guardians for our people to inspire and to lead in life as in death.
The elders and nobles of Thrax, honored by such gesture, granted Count Myrmex complete Support. This accomplishment, allowed Myrmex to foundate the Myrmidon Order, with whom he will completely represent the Guardians Achilleus and Lykurgos, with his Brothers as Paladins to spread its faith and belief and as Knights to protect Thrax in all of its glory.
Myrmex of house Namykos then decided with his Myrmidons to create a Settlement at the center of Thrax to become the pillar of his vision and for his people.
Heard of his Success, Duke Rojax Lyonsbane came to house Namykos to meet this new Ruler of Descendants to generously appoint him the title as trusted Marquis of the Duchy of Lyon, to become one of the Protectors and Commanders for his Realm and to fight for its glory.
Thus Myrmex and his Myrmidon Order joined the Church of Lyon as Crusaders of the Virtori, as a pledge of fealty and loyalty towards the House of Lyon.
Lore III Myrmidonia (RP)
The Settlement of Myrmidonia came together by the very early foundations of the Myrmidon Order, after Myrmex Namykos became Count of the land and region of Thrax, to ensure that his name of nobility cannot be mistaken and to honor the Legend of the Blood of the Mann Descendants of Ants running through their Veins. Being the Grand Master of the Order, he found it necessary to build a place to call their Home and to be able to spread their Belief and Faith of Achilleus and Lykurgos, the Guardian of Wrath and the God of Hunt to others, thus they created Myrmidonia.
It became the Heart and Capitol of the County of Thrax and the very Seat of house Namykos. Wondrous and extraordinary architectural Structures are built here from Wood to Stone to remember us of our Cult, Belief and Philosophy by our Myrmidon Masons and Architects.
Within the Wall of Myrmidonia, the People are living a free Life. Thus they Craft, Trade or sell their own goods for great fortune, inspired by the Myrmidons and their Strength, the Citizens have been educated in the Art of Weapon to be able to protect their Home or Dynasty whenever it is needed. It is a lively and harmonic place where people are open minded and sometimes let themself wander off to different places while Stories are being told and fights are being fought. Myrmex of house Namykos often wanders off his Grand Villa to visit and cherish the Children of his People and actively takes part in the Construction of his Settlement with his Order.
