Crusader Days and Knights
Laurent Everiste Boutine
A Troubadour from Occitan in the Larzac.
Cousin to Luc-Philippe of Ste. Eulalie de Cernon.
Laurent-Everiste grew up in the Larzac the son of a talented and locally renowned Troubadour. His father has done an excellent job teaching the boy how to play the vioulo and his voice has turned out to be quite melodious as well.
Laurent though being raised within the village walls of Ste. Eulalie he has never been committed to learning all of the Biblical prayers, verses, and teachings. His passion was truly for music and poetry of the Occitan. He is a rather handsome young man and consequently his father has become concerned about his relations with several of the local village girls. He has recently decided to tithe him to the commanderie as they have been looking for all sorts of camp followers. His voice and musical skill will be a welcome reminder of home for the Occitans and all the Christians in the Holy Land.
