Henryk of House Urde
Sword of Justice ~ Knight of the Holy Judgement
"Make sharp the sword of justice with which to slay the hydra of chaos and to hew off the head of evil.”
Henryk of House Urde carries the himself as would a "holy crusader," a spiritual calling that burns in his countenance and aura of charisma embodied in a strength of personality, but equally evident in his visible physical strength, the heft in his shoulders that fill an eastern lands styled, impressive suit of mithral full plate.
His features are near-Eastern, Damaran by good guess or direct familiarity of that region (DC Lore 10), and of one of the cities of Thesk. Of moderate height, his physical build it solid, with skin color of a tawny hue. Henryk is almost always outfitted in rare, medium-weight mithral armor, giving him constant comfort and mobility, even in relaxed moments. The regional weather of the Sword Coast and especially Baldur's Gate has caused Henryk to always make use of a hood, as it appears the near constant rains give him some personal bother.
Henryk carries an exotic blade at his belt.

Background (as it is known):
Henryk of House Urde has been sent on mission to the Sword Coast by the Head Knights of the temple The Hall of the Avenging Hammer in Telflamm, where he was ordained as a Crusader in the name of the Just God, and the order of the Knights of the Holy Judgement.
This mission was deemed fitting to Henryk's personality and general modus operandi as a knight-errant, who wished nothing more than to wander the lands of Faerun, delivering to all Peoples that with which he has been charged: "Reveal the truth, punish the guilty, right the wrong, and be always true and just in your actions."
- - Establish and develop the ideals of the Tyrran Church in Baldur's Gate, by promoting the Virtues of a Paladin, along with a severe devotion to the cause of Justice, to the righting of wrongs and the deliverance of Just Vengeance.
- Fulfill his mission/crusade, which brings him particularly to Baldur's Gate and does connect him to the recent developments of the political changes of Telflamm.
- Unravel those chaotic factions that stir upon the Sword Coast, as it has been rumored and written about for generations (a Tale placed in his mind from his temple of origin).
- Prove himself worthy of The Even Handed, to be given a vision of Tyr's warhammer.
- Regain his Paladins Steed.
Deeds & Successes:
- - A donation of 30,000 gold coin to the Tymount and Hamlet refugees, so that upward of Thirty Families could establish safe housing within Baldur's Gate during the winter of 1354/1355.
Possible Plot-Hook Ideas, Misc. Facts and Roll of Deeds:
- - Training the Tymount Ten as part of the Farmland's Refugee Camp.
