“The Knight with No Lords” is a fantasy feature script I’m writing involving the historical events of the Third Crusades. Think “Kingdom of Heaven” meets “Wrath of the Titans” and you have it.
At the turn of the 12th Century, the European political atmosphere is tense with the stench of war, distrust between alliances and a thirst for liberation, all in the name of God. Kingdoms stretching from the British Isles to the Himalayas are drawn into an inevitable conflict that is the Third Crusade. And as with every war in which the eve of atrocities are apparent, there are warlords who welcome it and Priests who advise against it. Then…there are those who just don’t care one way or the other. With one man, he doesn’t have a choice. Mostly due to the fact that this man is a demon.
With the appearance of a young man in lightweight black armor, designed with a Chinese feel to it, the tormented and antisocial Sir Velasse (played by Jon Foo) wonders the wheat-covered hills of France. Velasse is 513 years old and was an angel for the first 356 years. He became a demon when one of the 144,000 he was supposed to be protecting, was murdered by another demon named Sir Cato Havoc (played by Tom Welling).
As a young angel, Velasse was already a handful to begin with. A natural born swordsmen and rumored to be the fastest thing god has ever created, God warned Velasse for his boasting and bragging by removing his ability to speak. He can still grunt, laugh and scream, but he can’t form words. Despite this…Velasse remained loyal and steadfast to God.
Sir Havoc is a large athletic man with a youthful playful appearance of someone in their early 30s. He’s actually over 1,600 years old and has taken part in every world war, notably, the conquest of Alexander the Great where he assumed the name of Cassander. His personality has changed with every era and at present he’s now the right hand man of King Richard I of England. Even though he appears chivalrous in the presence of the king, Sir Havoc loves destruction and chaos more than anything. After persuading King Richard to take on the third crusade, Havoc and his personal army looks for the abyss to release the fabled Great Beast.
You see, Havoc gave in to the earthly temptations at the young age of 91. From the moment he first spotted Velasse, Havoc took a liking to his skill and prowess. And after Velasse turns down an offer to join him, Havoc kills the young woman who Velasse was assigned to protect. This woman was one of the anointed 144,000 believed to spend an eternity in heaven. Velasse had fallen in love with this woman. So in a relapse of blind fury, Velasse slaughtered hundreds of innocent people to seek out Havoc. It was his love for that 144,000 that drove him angry, when his love for god should’ve taken priority. Consequently, he was cast away. He had given in to wrath.
This is where our story begins.
Jon Foo – This is a show reel displaying the martial arts ability of the actor who I would get to play Sir Velasse.
