Trustees

Goose
Trustee

Some say that he comes from the North. That he rode with the chosen ones. Some say that he is in fact is the chosen one.

They say he dropped from the sky… on many occasions. That he has fought many battles.

They say that a mention of his name causes panic among bad guys, for he is armed with two God given weapons. Truth and Love.

Some say that he wears no medals but has been given many. There is talk he has two MCs one of which he rides.

They say that there is no fight that he will not win in the name of justice. They say that many owe their lives to this man.

He now faces a new challenge, one that he takes on with great enthusiasm and devotion.

They say that he lives to help others and will take no rest until he has.

Some say he has many names. We say we are proud to call him our fellow trustee; they call him… Goose.
