Originally, the Free Medics set out to better the world.
Filled with idealism and ambition and bound by their humanitarian principles they proclaimed their newly established "Homestead" as a safe heaven for the sick and weary. Everyone was welcome. No matter who they were, what they did and who they were aligned with. And soon enough, people came to visit them every day, seeking either aid for themselves or wishing to assist the Free Medic's in their noble cause. Plenty of new and eager volunteers were signed up without much thought and the Medic's numbers grew quickly. Motivated by the support they found amongst the men and women they had sworn to aid and the newfound friends that joined them along the way, the Free Medics stood tall and proud.
Ready to face the challenges ahead of them.
The quick and unceremonial dissolution of the Free Medics came as a surprise to some, but not to all. For some Medics it didn't even make a difference. The constant attacks and the growing resentment over the inaction of their leaders had already pushed them to operate independently, far away from "Homestead". And those that remained at their once proud home were plagued by poor morale, desertions and above all a lack of direction and purpose. On the day the Medics fell, a day long foreseen by the senior members, they lost only a label at worst and were freed from something they didn't believe in anymore at best.
In the end, nothing really changed that hadn't already changed over the last weeks.
And that was something Trym was very much aware of.
Disillusioned by past events but still strong in his beliefs of helping others he had made preperations for this day long ago. They would, they had to, continue in their mission for the greater good. But not as the Free Medics. If they were to succeed they had to distance themselves from their past and the painful memories, but never forget their shortcomings. They would be united as "Yggdrasil", as Trym had come to call it. Reformed, stronger and more adaptable than they were before. Not only just helping people but also teaching them the skills needed to survive and inspiring them to work together in these trying times. Over the coming days he gathered those still willing to do good despite all the setbacks around him at the only familiar place they had left: Under the spreading branches of the grand, old oak tree where they buried a fallen friend. A man lost to their own inaction and rules.
Once a sombre memorial to their failure, now a symbol to unite them and push them onwards.

Don't get killed
Never shall I lower my eyes
Before any challenge or foe,
Never shall I bend my knees
Before any lord or chieftain,
Never shall I bow my head
Before any god or wight,
But ever shall I bend my back
In service to my folk,
For never have I met a king so noble,
Nor a thrall so humble,
That they could not take pride
In a day’s work for the sake of their people.
