“It’s not so much running away as it is beating a strategic retreat.”
Sir Montalban is not the bravest knight in the kingdom, although he’s probably not the most cowardly. He knows how to use his sword, that’s for certain, especially in carving a mighty exit. He earned his sword and spurs in a peaceful time, and was content to sit guard at his Lord’s castle, making sure no errant peasants wandered through the long-since-rusted-open gates. But then the zombies came. And Brave Sir Montalban fought his way all the way through a retreat. He’s a good man to have at your back in a fight – especially to carve your escape.
