 I hope no one ever reads this, but I need to write my experiences down so I can sort them all. Multiple lifetimes is A LOT of information to be crammed in your brain. I hope no one ever reads this, but I need to write my experiences down so I can sort them all.

 When Nikephoros Phokas gathered troops for his campaign in Crete, I ended up joining him. In one of my "​lives"​ I learned how to ride horses. Since I spent much of my early life as a soldier, and still had trouble adapting to peace, I felt an urge to join up. I knew that it would be terrifying, but deep down inside, I knew that it was all I was good at. A minor noble had died, but I found out before anyone else. I took his identity, I took his armor and weapons, and I took his horses. When Nikephoros Phokas gathered troops for his campaign in Crete, I ended up joining him.

 The Emperor Romanus feared that Alp Arslan would invade the Empire. So Romanus went to Manzikert. He dispatched forces under Tarchaniotes to cover his southern flank. A young member of the Dukas family, Michael, controlled the forces covering Romanus'​s force. The Emperor Romanus feared that Alp Arslan would invade the Empire. So Romanus went to Manzikert.

 At that time, Norman Sicily was a very interesting place. Nowhere else in Europe could you find Catholics, Greeks, and Muslims living together harmoniously under a Catholic monarch. Since I was familiar with the Orthodox faith, I passed myself off as a Greek merchant. I made a lot of money shipping supplies to Tripoli and Acre. At that time, Norman Sicily was a very interesting place.

 I left Antwerp and ended up in Cadiz. I offered my services to the Almohads. To try and take out the Spanish, we would conduct far reaching raids. Along the way I saw the Spanish forces kill Muslims and Jews. That incensed me. Not fearing death, I boldly challenged as many Spaniards as I could. One-on-one, surrounded, overwhelming,​ etc. I left Antwerp and ended up in Cadiz. I offered my services to the Almohads. To try and take out the Spanish, we would conduct far reaching raids.

I only went along to pay off a debt that I owed to a Venetian merchant (Funny how tangled those things were back then). I arrived in the company of Giovanni Giustiniani,​ a Genoese condotteire.
