Alonso Mano Negro is a fencer soldier who was fighting for the Spanish Tercios during the 80 years war.


Alonso shortly became sick of fighting "religious" wars and became a deserter. He fled to the Kingdom of the Middle and lived in peace and harmony with the populace of the Canton of Ealdnordwuda. The Barony of North Woods took him in as one of their own and even gave him the chance to represent them at Pennsic War 48 as their Champion. Alonso's path crossed with Master Kai Tseng, and the two had an instant connection through their style and study of fencing La Verdadera Destreza. Master Kai accepted Alonso as his cadet during the Festival of Maidens. After 2 years of living in the Canton of Ealdnordwuda, Alonso raised his anchor and sailed to the furthest Eastern point of North America where he helped Lady Elspeth Schmalczin von Meittingen re-build the Shire of Ar n-Eilean-Ne (which had been left dormant for years). Master Kai Tseng gave Alonso the blessing to seek out a mentor to continue his research and training in the East, and Alonso could think of no one other than Don Doroga Voronin. Don Doroga accepted him as a cadet with open arms and introduced Alonso to his Mistress Elysabeth Underhill whom also extended her hand and welcomed Alonso. Together with Don Doroga they plan to pursue research and spread the knowledge of La Verdadera Destreza around the Known World.
