This belt bears the mark of Ryona, a legendary adventurer who traveled Eora in search of wealth and fame. When she was young, she trained at a martial academy in Ozia, where she struggled at first. Many of her fellow students came from wealthy, local families, but she was poor and foreign.

But she was clever, and she practiced much. One day, her chief rival -- the nephew of one of the ducs bels -- challenged her to a duel. Ryona could not refuse and save face, so she accepted. When they had assembled in the arena, he offered to give her one piece of his armor before the fight began.

He meant it as an insult to her skill, but when Ryona asked for his belt, he realized his mistake. He gave her his belt, with his sheathed rapier still attached to it, effectively disarming himself. Ryona won the duel by default and kept the belt as a memento.
