This image is of Sir Theo (I am sure you remember him... as he was one of the first focuses on this blog) and his squire, Johnathan. (Johnathan is Joneko's character.) While I was on my first real vacation in a small age, Joneko and I decided to pull Theo and his old universe out of retirement to start an "sort of secret project" that maybe you will someday see!! Not today though. Today you get to see THIS.
I will, however, tell you a little bit about what is going on because I made this part up and am proud of it: This is a defense lesson. It is a lesson that takes place early on in a squire's education. Two knights face off, each defending their squires. The squires are meant to watch and pick up on how the shield is used when defending another human being. Later on the squire is meant to defend a small child using only their body and the shield while their master tries to poke/tickle the child. The aim is not for the squire to defend himself- but rather to defend someone as unpredictable as, say, a screaming damsel.
