Strange indeed, the average medievel knight that met Sir Blomst would be confused.
Being confused is an excellent way to lose a battle.
The family of Sir Blomst is known for their strenght and hard work. They live on a hilltop in Denmark, where the first small Blomst-family farm has grown into a small fort. A good person is always welcome, an evil person has to stay outside. As time went by, and wealth grew, keeping the evil-ones outside became more and more difficult. Sir Blomst is the first is a range of defensive-soldiers. The flower and pitchfork, which have given the Blomst-family their strenght and wealth from the very beginning, still are the symbols of the Blomst-soldiers.
That's the story. Building him started with the pitchfork: I didn't remove the knives that came with the Medieval Market Village from their plastic-thingy. I thought it made a nice pitchfork and because I didn't remove the flowers from their plastic-thingy, I wanted to use them too. And for the story, it immediately unfolds when I start playing around with LEGO.
