Golden Age Origin

Sir Briane was a bold knight of King Arthur's court who wore enchanted armor forged by the Deathless Druid (probably Merlin). The armor rendered him highly resistant to injury.

He fought alongside the other Knights of Camelot such as Sir Gawain and Sir Kay against the Saxons and the Vandals. When the Saxons had been driven out and the Pax Arthuriana had been won he pit his strength against evil knights and monsters such as the Barghest.

Because of his sense of honor (or his ego) he would not wear his enchanted armor in a tournament, which the Barghest used to his advantage.

His lady was Tarna, a brave warrior in her own right who often aided him in battle and once wore his armor.
