House Belesku
Boras Belesku
is the son of Konrad, and Lilia Belesku making him the Boyar of the region of Juten, and the Lord of House Belesku. Boras Belesku has two siblings in the form of Lubina, and Slavina of which his sister Slavina has become the Lady of sorts of Castle Bajna, while his sister Lubina became a hedge knight following the death of her husband fighting Chaos to the east and spends much of her time rallying support for Kizlev in the lands of the West. Boras Belesku never married after the death of a girl he deeply loved as a child, and thus he has no children outside of Jacob Swan of whom he has basically adopted and made his heir.

Slavnov Ursenic would come to the aid of Boras Belesku when Boras and his holdings came under assault from the neighboring Boyar in the form of Dimity Sajolad and following the arrival of Slavnov the siege was ended.

You ever wonder how Tree Hill fell Franklin. You ever question how so many Orcs could just walk blindly across this kingdom and not a soul saw them. Maybe its time to start asking questions.
Meeting Kira

I wasn't used to a women being so much in control, as back in Lucerne the role of a women was quite different to what I discovered the role of a women in Kizlev was.
Jacob Swan

The convoy would stop outside of Kizlev and while there many nobles of the city came to see the specimens, and more then a few inquired about Jacob, but the gaurds made sure they understood that Jacob was going back to Boras and was not for sale. During the inspections of him, a girl walked up to the side of the cage, and begin to inspect him. Running her hands along the bars of the cage she walked throughout without a word to Jacob, and despite how entranced he was by the beauty of this women he remained silent as well listening to the words of the slave master who told him so. She would put her hands in the air as if to describe that she meant him no harm, and then she stuck her hand into the bars and grabbed ahold of his face and ran her hand across his cheek briefly before checking his teeth, and the strength of his jaw. She finally spoke to him, in the harsh language of the Kizlevian, and when he didn't respond she spoke a different language, until finally she changed again and spoke to him in a broken German. Hearing her for the first time, he tried his best to concetrate on what his master had said.

And with her hello she walked away clearly not knowing that hello was what you said at the beggining of the conversation and not the end. Watching her walk away she was joined by several heavily armed men who surrounded her as she walked back towards her horse, and before she departed he watched her give him one last look before galloping away. With Kira out of sight he was approached by Nikita Vlasiv one of the gaurds who asked him what she had said to him. He told Nikita and when he asked who the women was, he was told that it was Kira Tornov the daughter of one of the most powerful men in the Kingdom of Kizlev in the form of Igor Tornov the leader of Erengrad.

"He became the son none of my wives had ever been able to give me. One swing of his sword told me everything I ever needed to know about the German."
-Boras Belesku

When he was finnally delivered to his new master in Kizlev the man in Boras Belesku took one look at him and decided that Jacob was going to be a true warrior. Boras used his wealth built up as a long time trader to turn the broken Jacob Swan into his personal champion. He spent months bringing in a master trainer, and armorer to his estate where he fashioned armor and weapons that Jacob would use. All of this was happening as he was talking up his newest warrior to his people, and he spent a lot of energy making the young Jacob Swan the source of so much hope. While this was going on he was being trained further in the eastern style of fighting, which differed greatly from the very ordered style used in central Europe, and was regaining much of the strength that he had lost after so long as a slave.

Battle of the River Venigors

The Battle of the River Venigors
I don't ever want to be that scared again Kira. Promise me something. Promise me, that whatever comes our way. Whoever we end up fighting against. No matter how things turn out. We don't do it alone. We do it together.
Dora Novakovic Cover Amazing1
I had a lot riding on the young German. On the one hand he could win the battle and everything I had been building would only get stronger. With a victory behind us our forces would swell, and our chances of survival went up massively. On the other he could fail.
Boras Belesku

Everything had been relatively quiet in the Oblast of Oplane and this had led to Jacob and Boras to have more and more time to train the unkept peasents they continued to bring into Castle Bajna. Boras and Jacob Swan would have their quiet growth ended when they were alerted to the arrival of a large force of Chaos attacking the eastern steppes. This force was a vangaurd of the much larger force of Mogragian, and thus its purpose was mainly to test the resistence against the main force, and to sow destruction in the land. The size of the army was too large for just the forces of Boyar Boras Belesku and thus he went to Boyar Novokov Pentov with the hopes of uniting their forces alongside the forces of the Atarnan Alexi Rumin. Novokov had by the time they arrived already marshaled his forces alongside the two thousand gathered by Alexi Rumin's regent in Nastya Vasa, and was more then willing to join with their forces in order to save his land from the destruction about to happen to them. The three forces thus combined and waited in the forests near the large village of Khanrov where they would plan to come out of hiding from three sides once the forces of Chaos had gone past them and from there would ambush them.

We caused the deaths of a lot of innocent people by letters the outliers through but we trapped them at the same time. It was a cold calculating move that I never thought I would do. But I had too.
Jacob Swan

The Chaos force some fourteen thousand strong would come to the spot the allied forces were waiting and stopped briefly before they were engaged by small forces of Chaos spreading outwards from the main Chaos force. Under the advise of Jacob Swan these vanguard forces were not fought against and instead allowed to penetrate their defenses and this caused them to continue moving forward but they did report back to the main force that the Kizlev defenses were no where to be found and this caused arrogance among the main force. At this point Jacob Swan once again made advise that was heeded when he advised Ser Fedor of Volksgrad that he should send a force westward to make sure the outliers didn't cause to much damage behind their lines, and he did so sending two hundred riders west to hunt the outliers they had let by. Funneling the Chaos forces towards Khanrov they would finally make their move during the early morning just before the sun was setting and the Chaos force still in the process of sleep and completely unaware of the location of the Kizlev forces would be caught in the open as the Kizlev force came at them from three sides. True to their legend the chaos force would react violently and what forces that could begin to put up resistance, but by twenty minutes into the battle nearly half the Chaos force led dead and relatively light Kizlev casualties were causing mass panic among the lower ranks of the Chaos force. Beginning to splinter and retreat northward between the two northern forces the Chaos central leadership made one last attempt to stop the retreat when Lord Grugion of Rus roused his elite guard and went after Jacob Swan. Slavnov Ursenic led House Belesku's personal guard into the maelstorm allowing Jacob to deal with the Chaos Lord who had already butchered several Kizlev villages and was monstrous to behold. A fight between Grugion and Jacob Swan ended the battle with Grugion proving no match for Jacob and his death would cause the complete route of the remaining Chaos forces northward.

Caught at the River

Kira Tornov Cover Amazing3
His eyes haunted my dreams for much of the time that we were apart, and it maddened me. I had seen for less then a few minutes but those few minutes now haunted my dreams, and spilled into my life. I wanted to know where he was now, but I was too afraid to ask anyone. I knew that eventually I would have to or he would most likely die out their in the east, if he wasn't dead already.
Kira Tornov

As the Chaos forces retreated northward after their devastating defeat it was Kira Tornov that awoke thinking of the German Jacob Swan that continued to haunt her dreams. The meeting of the two had been brief but she would think of him for some time afterwards and it would be almost six months before she would meet him again. She discovered from a member of her battalion that the slaves at Kizlev City were being sent eastward for the army of Boras Belesku. While those six months were on she found herself constantly wanting to ask Boras who she knew somewhat where Jacob was now. She never did because she feared being scorned by those around her for looking into a slave, but as the days went by she found herself consumed by thoughts of him. She was shaken from these fears when she was alerted to the fact that a large Chaos force had been defeated by Boras and his forces in the east and was now moving rapidly north attempting to flee. Ravens sent to the north had warned her of their arrival, and she decided to ambush them as they attempted to cross the river Venigors. Commanding her Kreml Guard to mobilize she alongside her commanders Hetman Ursenic, and Graldamir Weisenov planned for the assault and sent word northward to Fork Orlosk where she wanted them to make sure noone got through on that side of the defences. She was moving her forces while Jacob Swan was now leading alongside Boras the large Kizlev force as they chased the forces of Chaos northward towards the trap waiting for them.

I had been fighting for six months against the environment, and then suddenly there is this huge Chaos force, and we are suddenly fighting them. After we destroyed them as a force and were chasing them down, I find myself being called a hero for what I did in the battle. I found myself carried away by the events and then when we massacred them on the backs of a mighty river I found myself staring once again at the most beautiful girl I'd ever met. Her face covered in a bloody red that matched her hair, and the look of curiosity in her eyes made me want to reach out and take her in my arms.
Jacob Swan

As Jacob's force pushed them towards the river the larger force of Kira Tornov would sit in front of them and cut them down by the hundreds as they attempted to blindly escape the forces of Jacob, and didn't even attempt to resist the forces of Kira. As they were stalled in their retreat north they attempted to move eastward but couldn't shift quickly enough before they were smashed from behind by the forces of Jacob and Boras and thus the entire Chaos force was massacred before it could escape. As the two Kizlev forces met in the center it would be Jacob, and Kira meeting again this time she saw him in full armor, and he saw her covered in the blood of the enemy holding onto her two swords. The two would basically make a bee line for each other and when they met without a single word to each other he placed his hand on her cheek and she melted into his hand before he pulled her into a hug. Seeing their usually unemotional leader hugging into this unknown man, many in her force were confused, and it wasn't until she pulled away and he led her by the hand away from the battle that the whistles and hooting begin.
