Luke, have I ever told you about Ruber of Camelot? He was the biggest guy among the knights, and only used his shield as decoration since it was mandatory to have one, he always said it was just a liability.
I never believed him until he decked a fully armed knight on his shield so hard we had to bury the poor sod with it. All that top of the Round Table, right after he denounced the king around his own table, and fought off the rest of us to kill him.
He was beaten back by magic, but he closed us into the room and the rest of the castle could never catch him.
Years later we've learned that he tamed a sentient, 2000 lbs, flying predator. Then he made it steal Excalibour from under our nose.
Days later he came back, with the sword being welded to his arm with some magic he either stole or bought from the witches in the swamp of death. The place that no one ever returned from.
Anyways, he moved down our troops with a mechanical army, then accidentally thrusted the sword into the magical stone, disintegrating himself.
He was a good friend.
