Sylum Inspiration: Robin Longstride

Camelot/Sylum: Member

Robin doesn’t remember much of his childhood.  He remembers his dad having strong hands, and working as a stone mason.

He spent most of his life in the army, his natural skills with a bow and arrow quickly moving up the ranks as an Archer.

As the Crusades moved on, he began to loose his faith.  And when he was abandoned by his superiors leaving him and a few friends alone on the battlefield at Damascus, he lost it completely.

He fought with his friends, until he was the last one standing.

Praying for the final blow to end his life, he closed his eyes in anticipation of going home.

Only to wake up in a filthy jail cell.

Robin could hear someone in the cell next to him, and soon the two talked and became friends.

Hearing the other prisoner say the Rosary daily helped restore his faith.

(Dilios Note: There are things that happened in those cells which neither of those men talk about)

He could hear defeat in his friend’s voice and was outraged that so fine a man should be reduced to such.  So they plotted an escape –  theory being to escape or die trying.

It was hell, but they did finally get out of that prison and onto the streets of Damascus, for chase to ensue until they were surrounded.  Ready to die with a sword in their hand, they stood together side by side, when men wearing black robes swarmed the area.

He was pulled away when one bent over his fallen friend, Antonio Crisafi, and begged for a chance to save his life.

Robin watched in horror and shock as the man grew fangs and bit Tony.

He struggled against the one who held him, only to be told he was safe.

They both were.

Robin blacked out from blood loss, and woke up in a comfortable bed, whereupon he swiftly rose and sought out those who had helped him and Antonio.  The man who had bitten his friend, introduced himself as Nicolaus, then explained what had happened.

Robin promptly demanded to be Turned, as there was no way Tony could survive without him.
