Stamus Contra Malum: 1013 YE
Legate (Count), Retired Imperator, and Adventuer
Born in 945 YE, D’mitri was the second son to Senator Pretorius Hastinov. After receiving a classical patricians’ education, D’mitri set out to find honor and glory for himself. He traveled to the Province of Traladar to seek adventure.
His life changed however, when he received a missive from his father. His father asked him to search for his younger half brother Borris, who his father had kept secret from D’mitri, who had gone missing near the Village of Luln. D’mitri set forth to find his younger brother. It as during this search he would meet the men and women who would become his life long comrades, the adventuring party the Crimson Blades. It was also during this time that he would meet his future wife, Lemunda and his most hated enemy, Eldwin Rodemus.
Countess Lemunda Hastinov
The next two years would be transfomative as he was swept up in the chaos that roiled the entire empire. He lost friends and comrades. He vanquished his enemies and by the end, he stood at the right hand of the new emperor of Thrace, Stefan the Great. For the next 35 years he served his empire with honor and distinction until the day he retired.
Now at the age of 68, he has outlived most of his enemies and his comrades, except for Oberron Trollnose. He has buried his father, both his brothers, his wife, and both his sons. His daughter Nazli and his horde of grandchildren carry on the name of Hastinov.
He spends most of his days now on his estate outside of Specularum grumbling about the state of the empire. He has seen much in his time and his lips guard some of the greatest secrets in the Empire.
