The youngest (in age and generation) of Joaquim’s judges is also his most loyal, a fact that makes up for much of his supposed weakness. Born within the last hundred years, Deondre was embraced on the battlefield by a more revolution-minded Zealot who had thoughts of taking revenge for Carthage. When Deondre was too ‘delicate’ for such rebellion, he was cast aside. Scrapping together rough tenants of the Code of Chivalry, Deondre sought education on the path in the Courts of Love. At the turn of the century, he was sent as an envoy to King Joaquim, who saw something in the boy. After arranging for him to serve as his herald in exchange for unknown boon to the Court of Love, he acted as his eyes and ears throughout the Giudicati. As it is thought Deondre to have personally destroyed a judge who was planning rebellion against the King, Bermudez used his influence among the island’s elders to have support for his promotion to new Judge. They see him as an easy enough pawn to manipulate, given his word being his bond. In truth, Deondre has taken to rule better than most would expect.
