Public vs. Private Persona
Emry is still trying to adjust to being back in court after years of absence and so his behavior is sometimes far from perfect. While he can be courtious his behavior isn’t exactly polished. He can be painfully blunt and isn’t always able to keep his temper in check, he isn’t particularly skilled at hiding any of his emotions.

He feels most at home surrounded by other warriors whether they be noble or men at arms. He’s quick to laugh and enjoys going out drinking and is good to have around if a fight breaks out.
305 - Padraig and Margarry welcome their second son, Emry.
310 - Along with his school work he begins bothering all the men at arms into letting him accompany them to training.
315 - Emry is sent to Corus to begin training as a page. He loved the work on the practice courts, first with staff and when they were deemed worthy to handle practice swords he felt a sense of satisfaction that made the bruises worthwhile. Sadly his dedication to weapons practice didn't always carry over into his lessons with the Mirthan Masters.
319 - Becomes a squire to ____ of ____
323 - His ordeal took place on the third night of midwinter and the chamber made him feel more helpless then he had ever thought possable. He wasn’t allowed to speak in the chamber, wasn’t allowed to scream. Not when he was kneeling in a pool of blood, how was there so much blood, or felt himself moving too slow, always too slow, never close enough, never in time, his limbs seemed to fight him, when he took a breath the air felt thick and heavy in his lungs. But the next morning he had passed and was knighted and did his best not to think about the things he had seen.
323-325 - Serves on the eastern border of Tortall.
326 - His father sends him to Tyra to retrieve an a couple of rare documents and artifacts that the man had been looking for for years, his desire to see some of their neighboring countries leads him to to travel over land, going through Tusaine and returning through Barzun.
329 - Attends court for both the funeral of King Roger and the coronation of King Jonathan.
330 - 331 Stationed on the southern Border near Blythdin
332 - Padraig haMinch dies in August, while Emry is saddened by the death it doesn't really change much for him accept that his brother started coming to him for advice on the men at arms since Emry had always had a better relationship with them. Emry spends the winter season in his family's Corus townhouse.
333-334 - Emry takes on Penelope of Trucha as a squire and then manages to get them a spot stationed on the Scanran border and proceeds to use that as an excuse to avoid returning to court. Practical experience is really the best thing for squires in his opinion.
334 - winter, Gavin haMinch dies in early November leaving only a young daughter and making Emry the new Duke a situation he felt completely unprepared for. Word is sent to Emry via mage. Despite the roads being almost impassable in places Emry must make his way back to Corus in order to be there by the first of the year.
335 January - March - tries to adjust all his new responsibilities while still in shock from his brothers death, starts a friendship with Gabriella of Bay Cove.
335 March - September - Accompanies the new ambassador to Barzun and returns at the end of summer with the previous ambassador's party.
