Sir Perry starts to pack up his belongings for his journey to the Byzantine Empire. Along with his belongings, he takes a memory of his mother with him which is a locket that she gave him right before she died. He made sure to leave his fief in the good hands of his younger brother, sir Patrick.
With a lot of hard goodbyes, sir Perry leaves his fief and goes on a long journey to the Byzantine empire with his favorite horse.
Tired and hungry, Sir Perry reaches his destination. He quickly sees the difference between the Byzantine and his home Constantinople. He sees the big economic gap between the poor and the wealthy.
He soon learned the different culture and society in the Byzantine and the fact that women ruled along side their husbands for a few years, 1028 to 1056. But now, women ruling has become less common.
Sir Perry regularly visited the church and this helped him adapt to his new home faster because religion was still an important aspect of the way of life in the Byzantine empire.
Three years later, Sir Perry has become comfortable to his lifestyle in the Byzantine empire. He gets used to trading with other for supplies he needs as well as gets used to taking care of himself and not being in charge of his serfs.
