"A thousand years of animosity cannot be forgotten overnight."
Ser Handeloup earned a reputation as an excellent leader for his ability to recognize and effectively utilize the talents of those within his support and logistics unit. Recognizing the value of his skills, Ser Aymeric named him second commander and saw that he would oversee not only general logistics but all Temple Knights training. Though there were some who questioned the appropriateness of Ser Aymeric's appointment at first, Ser Handeloup simply went about his business, jotting down notes in shorthand and carrying out his duties as ordered, and before long all came to accept this state of affairs.
Unlike the Heavens' Ward, Temple Knights are not required to take an oath of celibacy, and Ser Handeloup exchanged vows with a childhood friend around the same time he entered the order. Without exception, his colleagues praise the thirty-six year old knght as a loving father to his daughter, a young girl of seven summers.
