Sir Trotxâ Betiñéir has loyally served king and country since 2005. He has served in leadership roles for a not-for-profit theatre company, for two high-tech manufacturing companies, for an international IT services company, and for the largest character- development youth movement in the world. For his church he has served as a catechist, instructor, lector and extraordinary minister. Because of his work to bring justice to oppressed inner-city voters, Sir Trotxâ was awarded a full scholarship to the 1996 Colorado Leadership Forum.
Because of his support for his King and the only real Talossa, Sir Trotxâ has become a frequent target of abuse from the uncultured dilettantes of the so-called "Republic". Not content with months of their standard ad hominem attacks, these philistines held an insulting Photoshop contest in November 2006. The attack page disappeared after a broad groundswell of support from the citizens of Talossa forced the perpetrators to retract their false slanders.
In Talossa, Sir Trotxâ has served as Minster of Defence in the administrations of Sir Fritz von Buchholtz, UrN, Sir Samuhél Tecladéir, UrN and Domnul Mà La Mhà, Prüm Barôn Tepistà. He represented Vuode in the Senats. He served King Louis and King John as Dean of the College of Arms, and was elevated to Squirrel King at Arms in 2006.
While a student at university, Sir Trotxa took up fencing after an introduction to edged weapons in a stage combat class. He quickly mastered foil, épée and sabre, and competed in all three weapons at college club level. In three years of college fencing, he was campus champion in 1984 and 1986, and placed second in 1985. He later studied rapier with Ian Hudek, master light fighter with the Society of Creative Anachronism. He has been involved in two duels, the most recent resolved when his challenger fled his home country in terror and remained abroad for two weeks.
Sir Trotxâ stands ready to defend his country and his honour, with God as his leader and his sword at his side.
