Aegon Baratheon was born into House Baratheon, in the city of Veluna in CY 596. House Baratheon is a small but proud house and Lord Arik Baratheon considered himself blessed that Hieronious granted he and his wife 11 children 8 sons and 3 daughters. Aegon being born 6th had little hope of inheriting lands or title but he was still expected to uphold his duty to his family and lord.
At the age of 6, Aegon won a melee tournament against other youths as much as twice his age. After the tournament he was sent to squire for Commander Benjermain Tycho; Commander Tycho even at that time was considered a brilliant battlefield commander, noted for his use of arcane and other non standard tactics in order to crush his enemies. He took a liking to Aegon immediately and personally tutored him in swordsmanship, strategy and tactics.
Many of Tycho’s top lieutenants also took a liking to Aegon as well. Chief amoung these was Luaraindel Silverswan a Elven spell warrior. She fostered Aegon’s interest and talents in arcane swordcraft. Aegon served with distinction in every task assigned to him and in CY 611, Captain Tycho Knighted Aegon and granted him the title of First Knight (the title of the personal bodyguard of any officer ranking Captain and above).
In CY 612 Captain Tycho, Aegon and Tycho’s men were personally asked by Joc De Lemay to Join the newly formed Inquisitor Corps. Aegon expessed concern about some of the more Brutal dictates of the Corps, however when Captain Tycho, ordered him to “stowe his concerns” Aegon complied and served as Tycho’s right hand man through the Battle of Fulwar.
After The Battle of Fulwar, Aegon was granted his own command by Joc De Lemay, Aegon initially refused the command expressing his desire to continue to serve Captain-General Tycho. In order to force Aegon to take the command he had earned Captain-General Tycho dismissed Aegon from his service. After just a few battles Aegon was chosen to member one of the many special strike teams that Lord John De Lemay was running to engage in guerrilla warfare behind enemy lines.
Aegon served out the rest of the war harassing the enemy behind the lines and even led a rescue team to try to retrieve Jon Lemay before his execution. Aegon was the only survivor of that failed mission. when the war ended Aegon sided with the traditional faction of the church of Heironeous and was officially was welcomed back into the fold however when Joc le May made the proclamation of Manifest Slaughter, Aegon was ordered to “take care” of Joc le May. Aegon refused to the order to kill Lemay and argued that lemay should be allowed to be taken alive, this cast suspicion on Aegon and he was assigned to qurtermaster duties in the city of Dyvers.
When Joc Le May Surrendered in Veluna City, Aegon spoke at the trial as a witness for the defense. Aegon argued that while he believed Le May had violated Hieronian eddicts, he should be allowed to undertake a quest to atone. The tribunal found Le May guilty and sentenced him to be purified by fire.
Aegon resigned his commission and went to join the Order of the Blackblade a knightly order allied with the church of Heironeous but not recognized as a Heironian Order (many members of the Inquisitor Corps joined this order following the execution). The Blackblades eddicts allow for some moral lattitude if it serves the greater good and are willing to accept many different types of members. Aegon was immediately accepted into the order and afforded the rank of Captain.
He was then offered to undergo judgement, a ceremony in which a Knight of the Blackblade is tested by the sentient swords that the order is named after, to determine if he would be a worthy wielder. Many swords judged Aegon worthy to be their hand, however one Sword’s voice would not be denied. The sword “Oathkeeper”, took Aegon to be it’s hand. “Oathkeeper” had not taken a hand in nearly three-hundred years; the last of whom was the paladin-knight Jos van Duron the slayer of Saphgothagor the Blue dragon.
