Biography EditBefore the war, at the age of 20, Reynard enlisted and served under King Reginald of Rivia as a lieutenant. Not properly earning his position with experience and wanting to prove himself, Reynard began to spout off about the king's poor decisions publicly. As a result, a superior officer reported Reynard and he was charged with lèse-majesté, the crime of offence against a reigning sovereign or state. At his trial, he was found guilty of treason and sentenced to hang for his crimes, however Reginald delayed the execution and asked he repeat every word Reynard had said against him, which he did. Reginald agreed with the offensive comments, and appointed Reynard his personal aide, seeing potential in the man.
In 1259, when Reginald died, he started serving under his wife, Queen Meve.
When the queen however returned in the capital, she was victim of a conspiracy against her organized by Count Caldwell and by her own son Villem, who was placed on the throne in her place and later surrendered the country to Ardal aep Dahy.
In Angren, the queen's army was forced to face a Nilfgaardian division named Morteisen Battle Group on Red Lobinden's bridge on the Yaruga river. During the battle, even Geralt and Cahir participated.
After the Battle for the Bridge he introduced Geralt to his queen because she wanted to knight the man who defended the bridge against the Morteisen Battle Group and led the Lyrians against the Nilfgaardians. Meve was seriously injured in her face during the fight and she lost several teeth. Hence she could not recite the accolade formula. Odo did that in the name of the queen, but the knightship was given to Geralt from Queen Meve. Geralt was now granted the right to call himself Geralt of Rivia.
