Count On Me
Long, long ago in an age where we lived in castles and fought battles with swords and axes and maces, in an age long lost to us… there appeared a man. Where he came from, few of us know. The Count Gustaf is a man of myth. His ancestry is shrouded in legend. Some say he is a descendant of the Aztec Ruler Cuauhtemoc, others say he is a descendant of Count Roland of the Francs. Some claim he is the scion of Sher Shah Suri. Many allege he is of the house of Alaric the Visigoth.But it is widely believed that The Count Gustaf does not have any royal lineage.
He has appeared over and over in history in various disguises and visages. He was first seen on the Viking ship Draken Harald Harfagre. Later he was spotted among the Militant strategists in the Sultan Saladin’s army in 1173.
He has been sighted as a pianist performing with Ludwig van Beethoven in 1804. He is rumored to have been a student under Konstantin Stanislavsky in 1905, and under Richard Feynman in 1959.
There is no definite proof that the Count is Batman, but the Count and Batman have never been spotted in a room together. It is said that he wields one of the nine rings which he cut from the hand of a Ringwraith. He is an acquaintance of Gandalf the White and Radagast the Brown.
The Count is always searching for knowledge and has spent years studying the sciences. He is an enthusiastic pianist and actor. The Count has dueled several knights and he is known for his valor and speed in leaving the dueling grounds.
Several centuries ago, the Count was injured while fighting an army of Huns. He was saved by the enchantress warrior known as the Duchess Esfira and fell in love with her.
He believes there is still magic in this world. He has spent the last few years searching for it, across the oceans and the lands, far and wide, along with the Duchess Esfira. He is currently rumored to be in the African continent or in the Mariana Trench searching for traces of magic. His only known residence is the Björnstort Castle.
