An Unsung Heroine

>> Monday, October 4, 2010

You know, I really love heroes in the old stories that people have never heard of. But sometimes, it'd be nice if other people gave them recognition.
Anyway, you've all heard of King arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Lancelot, Gawain, and many others. There was also a Sir Pellias (or Pelleas, as some spell it).
A young maiden came to Camelot one day, and she had a quest for Sir Pellias.

Her name was Parcenet.

Who accomponied Pellias on his quest?
Parcenet.
Who rescued him and his honor?
Parcenet.
Who friggin' saved his life in the forest when he was too weak to call for help?
Parcenet!

And how many Google results do you get with her name?
A big fat 0.

So, please, let's appreciate the damsel who did what a knight could not.

I Am An Otter

You're an otter, mate! Another good friend of Redwall, you are a natural swimmer and a deadly fighter especially with a long bow or javellin. Camp Willow is your home, just as Redwall is your second home. You have a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty. You absolutely love Shrimp and Hotroot soup, living by the motto "Ain't nothing 'otter for an Otter!".
