His ancestor's story starts in a school. Nothing about it is passed down to current times, save that it was a horrible place, ran by an evil "Principal," who gleefully tortured and tormented any children who crossed him. Those brave few children who fled this horrible place found sanctuary in the land of Davenriche. There, they found and settled in an ancient church of worship dedicated to the religion of Chivalry. In these hallowed halls they grew strong, growing in number and learning of the ancient golden age known as the Time of Chivalrie. Their gospel, the Tæles of Chivalrie, was their guide to survival, and the castle in it's center was their stronghold. Over time, they grew stronger and larger, reproducing a mighty civilization set in the heart of Davenriche. Their most evil enemies were the Grag clan, those who had read the holy Word and turned their back on it, choosing instead to worship the heretical teachings of Grognak the Barbarian. The two warred bitterly, yet the evil teachings of the Grognak, mixed with the unholy grounds of the canyon they had chosen, were barely able to survive the might of the Davenriche armies.
Thomas was born to twenty third ruler of Davenriche, a might warrior named Ned Bannerlord. He was trained from a young age to follow the Law of Chivalrie, and fight the horrors across the canyon. In this, he failed. He led his forces into an ambush he should have seen, distracted by drinking and laughing with his men, and they were destroyed by the barbarians in the most crushing defeat in years. Of the 30 warriors in his command, only 4 survived, with life crippling wounds. Some of his father's best knights died to defend him, their corpses littering around him. The only reason Thomas himself survived is because of their sacrifice, and the dark rage that gripped him. The few soldiers who survived to watch him fight swore he lost the art of Chivalrie, fighting like a barbarian with utter brutality, beyond even what they themselves dreamed of. When his father's men found him, he was dripping blood from multiple small wounds, covered in the blood of his enemies, and calmly removing the limbs of an enemy soldier one by one. The soldier was still alive.
When the men tried to help him, he nearly turned on them before he regained control of himself and saw what he'd done. He returned disgraced, and with the survivors testifying against him, his father had no choice but to try him for incompetence and turning to the enemy's tactics. The jury was unanimous. He was given just enough medical care to save his life, his equipment was repaired, and he was stripped of his title. Thomas Banner, Lord no more, was exiled into the wastes until he could prove he was worthy of his title.
