As a young boy he was always more interested in playing with his wooden sword than he was listening to the Maester ramble on about this or that. His mind was too active for studies with books, he had too much energy and thus never truly learnt to read. The young Baldwin lived off of stories of Ser Barristan the Bold, or Ser Duncan the Tall. He would obsess over Jousting tournaments, and even had a favorite Knight in the Westerlands. He pleaded with his father to let him squire for Ser Garold Sarsfield, a Knight that young Baldwin idolized beyond all Knights. The Lefford House prestige and obvious youthful loyalty Baldwin had was enough for Ser Garold to agree to take the boy under his wing.
Years of devoted training would strengthen the beautiful boy, turning him into a paragon of virtue. His handsome looks helped quickly turn him into a favorite at the joust. The talented young lad entered as many tournaments as possible; it wasn’t long before he won a prestigious title of Tournament Champion. Wanting to become more than just a tournament Knight, he wanted to dedicate himself to his land and his people. Baldwin now searches to become known in the Westerlands as a True Knight, adhering to the Chivalric code and protecting the weak.
