Sir Clydno, Knight of the Finger
Sir Clydno, le Chevalier le doit, was my primary player character during the (Berkeley) campaign. His name came from the fact that he owned a finger of Saint Albans that he kept in a finger-shaped reliquary which he wore on a chain around his neck. He nearly got himself killed a couple of times because of that finger, and nearly took other PCs along too.
The finger became a character motivator as Clydno's faith in it, and in God, went back and forth depending upon his luck. He even left it home one adventure, but felt naked without it and stopped that foolishness.
The finger also gave me the chance for that most wonderful moment of Pendragon, a glorious death. It was when Camelot was being besieged, and the handful of knights had sallied forth in a desperate night attack to try to destroy the evil machine which was, we thought, operated by an evil cleric (that is, "the canon" that we had heard so much about). Amid the fighting and flames and fear Sir Clydno tore the artifact from his neck and threw it into the mouth of the machine and shouted, "You have done me no good for my life, maybe you can help in my death." At that moment the damned thing exploded killing Clydno (and several other characters, including the famous Sir Leodegrance the Lesser.)
