The Right Lord Lorel Taenring found himself in the unenviable position of being caught in a war between two branches of his own family, fought over hunting rights to certain lands that were jointly owned. While most family members found it easy to choose a side, Lorel could not bring himself to take up arms against anyone in his large extended family.

He had this brigandine decorated in two tones, each representing the opposing family banners, and had the local spellwrights imbue it with the power to raise a wall of briars, which he hoped to use to keep the sides divided on the battlefield.

When the two sides met in combat, he rode out to the center of the battlefield, raising briar patches and waving to both sides, calling out for them to stop their mad feud. Unfortunately, his decorative brigandine had the opposite effect of what he intended, and each side read it as being the uniform of the other. He was felled by a rain of arrows from both directions.

When his family realized he had died, they put their battle on hold and discussed peace. Then they began to argue about where Lorel would be buried and the feud began anew.
