The Side of the Highlord the Royal Courier Won’t Show Us
By Fisherman Swaffman
With all the slander and just poor attention seeking going on during these dark times, I decided today was a day to release a rather light-hearted article. Today we will delve into the life of a one Highlord Lys Raseri of the Legion of the Dawn. While in the past the Royal Courier painted him as a warmonger, a villain, a man who eats babies, today you will see the true side of Lys Raseri. From a simple knight to Highlord, today you see the Raseri I know.
Above we see Lys as a young lad, riding through the roads of Hillsbrad with his fellow knights. Notice the elves in the right corner, they were personal friends of Lys. One could assume they used to stay up all night at their little dinner parties, Lys entertaining his other raced friends with his ability to recite his oath to the Light in under twenty seconds. Ah, those were the good ol’ days, but this isn’t all we’ve seen of the Highlord’s peace.
Here you can see Raseri taking a break in Alterac after a long day of dealing with annoying screaming, bullshit everywhere, and false promises. Man, that Blazeralw really could make a man pull his hair out. Anyways, notice how peaceful he is in this picture. He isn’t declaring war, threatening to dismantle, or breaking anybody’s tusks. He’s just laying there on the fluffy snow of Alterac, so peaceful it’s almost as if he was dead.
Also notice the goblin in the upper left corner, that was a friend of the Highlord. Even during a time of war, Lys was able to see past the difference between red and blue, burying the hatchet momentarily to share a drink with a friend. Did the Royal Courier show this picture when they painted him as a traitor to the Alliance? I think not.
As you can tell from above, the Highlord here is with his little mage sidekick attending a Sin’dorei’s wedding. Look at him, having a laugh, how nice and innocent. It’s almost as if he hadn’t seen the deaths of thousands of orcs almost a week before this picture was taken. Isn’t it nice how he can bury the hate to share in the joy of someone’s special day? Notice the orc hand in the right side of the photograph, that was Orruk, I think. He was dressed rather nicely that day.
Here we have the Highlord and his men being escorted by Warbringer Skar’grak. Despite the two being mortal enemies, Highlord Raseri was able to stay his blade to allow the orc to swallow his pride and escort his enemy. As part of a temporary peace deal, Skar’grak was forced to escort Raseri and his men through Hillsbrad and into Alterac, the orc being turned into nothing but a fool as the Highlord rode on behind him. While I feel no sadness for Skar’grak, I just wanted to let you know the Highlord only partook in this because he and his men needed to get to Alterac fast.
Here is the masterpiece of our pictures of Lys. We decided to gather the boys together to go fishing for Alranon Purdue’s bachelor party, and we decided to invite Jan-Mak along for good times. Man, I wonder how he and the wife are doing right now. The two kiddos really hit it off, sitting next to each other and fishing. Rumor has it this is the only picture of Jan-Mak without his mask. Notice the bond between them, almost as if they had been companions for twenty years. The two didn’t even have to speak a word to each other, just merely glance and they knew what the other was saying.
Notice how there’s no blood being shed, no bodies being flung around. The Royal Courier would have you believe Lys is a warmonger, but he is nothing more than a man who wants his home back. Don’t let the tabloids taint your view on a virtuous man, remember there’s two sides to every story.
Will Jan-Mak and Lys profess their love for each other? Will they form a super army called the Legion of the Volkar? Is the Royal Courier trying to shame their love? Will Jan-Seri overcome the hardships society has presented? Where is his mage sidekick? When will Raseri return to Alterac? These questions and more to be answered as the story develops.
