Demigod by InfernalFinn Demigod by InfernalFinn
A marriage of power and mortality.

Here is a poem, written by fellow deviant lonewulftea

So soft and strong our melody flows
Through a wind shaped chasm it hastily goes.
With feeling and strength that only two knows
No sweeter sound, no prettier rose.

I once thought my soul earth bound
But this was prior to you come round
Like the early bird chirping his sound
A bit of love I have found.

A Knight's duty is not to love
It is to protect and serve those higher above
But you and I like a two Turtle Dove
Can show the world, what we are made of.

My chance has passed but has not disappeared
My sight once hazy but now has cleared.
I will be your knight I promise you Dear
And will stand both at ease and ready with Heart and Spear.

 It's hard not to think of this as Duke Theseus of Athens, rather than Herakles (admittedly the identification stems more from a lack of Herculean war-club than anything else!).

I was wondering that as well. Is this some sort of medieval rendition of Heracles?

well the initial idea came from crossing Greek mythic figures with a more Norman/high medieval European culture. So yeah Hercules was definitely in the back of my mind, though this is an original character.

Is that the Nemean Lion? That would mean it's Hercules.

Also; very good job. ;)

firstly, I'm glad you like it. It's actually an original character (something I post very few of here on DA) and he most certainly is channeling Hercules in some way - sort of a cross between a Homeric Greek hero and a feudal Norman knight.. something I was playing around with.
