Title: Jehantel the Godsbow

Once captain of the Gods' Quiver, this roving bard earned the name "Godsbow" for his almost preternatural skill in archery. It was several decades ago during an expedition to hunt down Ixal that Jehantel contradicted a direct order and ranged into enemy territory alone. While he was absent, however, his squad was attacked and slaughtered to the last. The gifted bowman spent the days following the ambush wracked by guilt, the regret eventually driving him away from the Gods' Quiver and into a life of aimless wandering. He returned to the Twelveswood many years later, claiming to have embraced the calling of a simple minstrel, and it is through his rebirth as a bard that the secrets of forgotten battlesongs have returned to the land.

Artemis Bow: A longbow beloved by Gilbert the Godsbow, he of much carnage. A mighty singer of songs as well as a slayer of Ixal, Gilbert dreamt of a bow whose form was sired by the noble harp, and set the finest smith in Gridania to the task of creating such a weapon. Keen ears claim that every arrow that flies true from the Artemis Bow sings a pure note as it charts its course.

Additional Dialogue
Greetings. Have you an interest in the poetry and song of the bard?
Who are you?
I am but a simple minstrel. Though once I served with the Gods' Quiver, my days are now measured by stanza and verse. It has been long years since I last set foot within the Twelveswood... yet I could no longer ignore fate's insistent pull. And so, I shall abide here for a time until certain matters are laid to rest.
What does a bard do?
When folks think of a bard, they conjure images of a minstrel wandering the realm, performing at banquets and in alehouses for the pleasure of king and commoner alike. But the bard I would speak of is one born from a battle-hardened archer—one who sings his/her songs in the heat of combat to inspire his/her comrades to ever greater feats of martial prowess. As battles unfold, the distinctions between the lines of friend and foe grows hazy. Yet the archer must stay ever alert, with arrow nocked and eyes trained upon the struggle. One need not have a vivid imagination to appreciate the torrent of emotions that rages within him/her in that moment. Nerves near to fraying, his/her breast fit to burst, the archer does the only thing he/she can: he/she sings. And in that raw melody resides the power to stir the souls of men. That, my friend, is the true definition of a bard, and one that few now remember.
  • Jehantel is 68 years old.
