Breit de l’Air

“The Wide Air”

There are different versions of “Breit de l’Air,” which is part of a trilogy of adventures undertaken by Sir Sagramore. The other two adventures in this trilogy are often referred to as “Breit des deus amants” and “Breit des Vermeil.”

During the quest for the Holy Grail, Sagramore embarks on the adventure. The name Breit de l’Air translates to “The Wide Air,” suggesting that the adventure takes place in a vast and open space, perhaps in the wilderness or a remote region.

In this adventure, Sagramore encounters various trials and challenges, including battles against formidable adversaries and tests of his courage and loyalty. As he ventures into the wilderness or remote regions, he may encounter wild beasts such as wolves, bears, or mythical creatures like dragons or giants. These encunters test his combat prowess and ability to defend himself against formidable opponents.

The journey through the wide expanse of open air may subject Sagramore to harsh weather conditions, treacherous terrain, or natural hazards such as steep cliffs, raging rivers, or dense forests. Overcoming these challenges requires recourcefulness, resilience, and survival skills.

Along the way, Sagramore may cross paths with rival knights or adversaries who seek to challenge his honor or prove their own prowess in combat. These encounters often lead to duels or skirmishes where Sagramore must demonstrate his martial skill and uphold the code of chivalry.

In some versions of the adventure, Sagramore may be on a quest to retrieve a sacred relic or object of great significance, such as a magical artifact or a symbol of divine favor. This quest may lead him to ancient ruins, hidden temples, or mystical realms where he must overcome guardians or obstacles to claim the object of his quest.

Sagramore may encounter individuals in distress or facing injustice during his journey. Whether rescuing a damsel in distress, defending a village from marauders, or championing the cause of the oppressed, Sagramore demonstrates his commitment to protecting the weak and upholding the principles of knighthood.

Throughout the adventure, Sagramore faces internal trials that test his virtue, integrity, and adherence to the code of chivalry. These may include temptation, moral dilemmas, or ethical challenges where Sagramore must choose between honor and expediency, loyalty and self-interest.

Each of these obstacles and battles contributes to Sagramore’s growth as a knight and shapes his reputation as a valiant and noble hero, demonstrating his worthiness as a Knight of the Round Table and further solidifying his reputation as one of King Arthur’s most esteemed companions.
