TO BE CONTINUED…..

An opinion: Percy can’t be dead because he hasn’t reached the end of his knightly quest.

Seriously though, Percy follows pretty much all the standard knightly tropes of the early chivalric romans (barring the whole was-chased-out-and-didn’t-leave-of-his-own-volition thing):

- leaves court to regain his honor (ie the balance between power and chivalry––with his guns he wields enormous power but he seeks to rectify this “mistake” by eventually destroying these weapons; it’s the same reason Ripley’s sales leave his story unfinishedt)
- becomes knightly by fighting monsters in the forest (where “the forest” is shorthand for “outside of civilization”) and redeeming fellow knights (ie saving other people of noble standing from their own destruction––Cassandra is the most obvious example, plus Uriel pre-stream)
[- meets a powerful woman who serves in turn as a benefactor and also close friend, whose relationship is chaste and deferential; listen I’ve talked about perc’ahlia and the tenants of l’amour fine before]

Honestly the only thing he’s missing is the errantry aspect, which we’ll give him a pass on because D&D is by definition a community game and you can’t have a knight errant among the party (I mean, you can but it causes problems).

At of this to say that, assuming Taliesin knows his tropes (which, I mean, it’s Taliesin), Percy story is inherently not done because he hasn’t Returned. The most important part of the chivalric romances is that, at the end, the knight returns to the court having relearned what it means to be a knight, having found the balance between being Powerful and Good (and Percy wants to die a good man). Not that Taliesin is building a perfect chivalric romance (who can blame him; this mix of tropes and conceits is far more interesting), but there’s clearly some chivalric factor in there. He named the character after (some iteration of) Perceval, the knight who begins as far from knightly as possible, in the middle of the forest, family dead and without any understanding of what it means to be a knight, who discovers it as he goes, through the help of friends and allies, and tell me that isn’t Percy in a nutshell.

He has so much more to do.
