Dark Relic

Synopsis: The Holy Land, 1099AD. The end of the first Crusade. When the conflict began, Christian knight Sir Gregory lead over a hundred men, but now less than ten remain. They include his squire Paul, a friar named George, and the arrogant Sir Robert. George and Sir Gregory discover a holy relic - a fragment of the True Cross and embark on a journey to Rome, to present the relic to the Pope. En route the ship they charter runs aground, their crew dead. Continuing their journey overland, the knights come across three Turkish warriors (two swordsmen and a female archer) and two pilgrims (a woman named Rebecca and an unnamed man) being attacked by bandits. The knights rush to their aid, and after a brief fight all the bandits are killed. They insist on accompanying Sir Gregory and his men on their journey, and the pilgrims also join the group. That night, the male pilgrim and one of the knights both go missing. Many other unfortunate things begin to occur to the group and Sir Gregory realizes that

[wind blowing]

- YOU HAVE IT?

- GIVE ME.

- NOT UNTIL I SEE IT.

- NOW.

I HAVE TO...GET RID OF IT.

- I'VE MET TOO MANY CHARLATANS

SINCE OUR ARRIVAL HERE,

AND MANY KNIGHTS

HAVE BEEN TRICKED

INTO TAKING FALSE RELICS

TO THE HOLY SEE.

I WON'T BE ONE OF THEM.

STAY HERE, SIR RAYMOND.

STAND GUARD.

- YES, SIR.

- IT'S IN THERE.

- IF THIS IS A GENUINE

PIECE OF THE CROSS,

THEN IT IS NO FOR US TO TOUCH.

- COULD IT BE?

- VENI, VENI

SANCTE SPIRITUS...

[speaking Latin]

...AMEN.

THE BLOOD OF CHRIST!

- WE HAVE A DEAL.

- GOOD.

TAKE IT AWAY.

QUICK.

- BLESS YOU, MY SON.

- WELL, IS IT?

- IT IS A TRUE RELIC.

A REAL PIECE:

OF THE LORD'S CROSS.

- YOU COULD FEEL THE HOLY

SPIRIT POURING FROM IT.

- WE HAVE

FINALLY SOMETHING

TO MAKE THIS CRUSADE

WORTH THE FIGHT.

LET'S GO.

[coins clanging]

[Gothic-style music]

[horse neighing]

- WORD HAS SPREAD ABOU OUR FIND, SIR GREGORY.

- AND THEY SAY

A PIECE OF THE CRUCIFIX

IS AS PRECIOUS:

AS THE HOLY GRAIL.

- I SAW SOME RED FACES

IN TANCRED'S COUR

WHEN HE HEARD THE NEWS.

HE FEELS HE WAS BEATEN

TO THE ULTIMATE PRIZE.

- WELL,

AS WELL HE MIGHT.

WHEN WE BRING:

THIS BEFORE THE HOLY SEE,

THERE'LL BE PRAISE INDEED.

YOU'LL BE A HERO.

- A HERO?

I'M MORE CONCERNED A HOW THESE NIGHTS GROW COLDER.

- THE WEATHER IS TURNING.

PERHAPS NOW IS THE BEST TIME

FOR US TO LEAVE.

- WHEN WAS THE BES TIME TO ARRIVE?

- THE CRUSADE WAS

WORTH ALL THE SACRIFICE.

DON'T YOU THINK, BROTHER GEORGE?

- OF COURSE.

- THINK OF ALL

THE GLORY YOU'D HAVE MISSED

HAD WE ARRIVED ANY LATER.

- WHAT GLORY WAS THERE

IN THIS BLOODSHED?

- PERHAPS YOU FORGE IT WAS THE GLORY OF GOD.

- GOD HAD NO WISH FOR THIS.

THIS WAS THE GREED OF MAN.

- BE CAREFUL

WHAT YOU SAY, MY LORD.

THAT COULD BE:

CONSTRUED AS BLASPHEMY.

- YOU WERE AT THE COUNCIL

OF CLERMONT, AS WAS I.

EMPEROR KOMNENOS

ASKED FOR OUR HELP,

AND WE WERE:

READY TO GIVE IT.

- CLERMONT WAS

A COUNCIL OF WARMONGERS.

I SEE THAT NOW.

- YOU NEEDN'T SPILL TEARS

OVER THOSE WHO HAVE SLAIN.

THEY DESERVE WHAT THEY GOT.

AND NOW WE HAVE:

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

AS IT SHOULD BE.

- WHAT WOULD

YOU SPILL TEARS OVER?

- I SPILL THEM

OVER SLEEPING ALONE.

- FOR ME, IT'S SPENDING

ANOTHER NIGHT IN THIS COLD CAMP

WHILE MY LANDS ARE

PROBABLY BEING PLUNDERED

BY THE THIEVING BASTARDS

I LEFT TO LOOK AFTER THEM.

WHEN CAN THE REST OF US

SEE THIS TREASURE?

- AN ARTIFAC OF THIS MAGNITUDE

SHOULD ONLY BE FOR THE EYES

OF THE HOLY FATHER HIMSELF.

HE SHALL DECIDE WHO

IS FIT TO GAZE UPON IT.

I'VE DECIDED IT'S TIME.

TOMORROW,

WE LEAVE FOR JAFFA.

FROM THERE,

WE TAKE A SHIP TO ROME.

WE PRESENT OUR GIFT,

AND THEN...

FINALLY...WE GO HOME.

- YES!

THAT'S A SIGN

FOR MORE MEAD, LADS.

[birds chirping]

- THIS FOR

YOUR THANKS, CAPTAIN.

- I THINK WE'LL HAVE A SMOOTH

PASSAGE FOR YOU, MY LORD.

OH, OOPS.

[chuckles]

YOUR BACKSIDE'S TOO USED TO

FINE WINES AND LAZY HORSES, EH?

- AND MY BLADE IS

USED TO INSOLENT TONGUES.

- OH, I'M SURE IT IS.

AND ME, BEING A GOD-FEARING MAN,

WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY.

FATHER.

- IT'S BROTHER.

- CAREFUL THERE.

- YES, MY LORD.

[loud thud]

- WHAT HAVE WE HERE?

- I'M SORRY, CAPTAIN.

I'M AFRAID THAT'S

NOT FOR YOUR EYES.

- MAYBE NOW YOU'D ALLOW ME

TO BRING YOU A CLEAN TUNIC.

YOU SMELL WORSE:

THAN THE CAPTAIN.

[both chuckle]

- YOU KNOW MY VOW.

NOT UNTIL:

I REACH MY OWN BED.

- AT LEAST NOW I CAN

FINALLY SEE THAT HAPPENING.

I CAN'T WAI TO GET BACK HOME.

- ME TOO.

AND THEN WE SHOULD TALK

ABOUT YOUR STATUS AS SQUIRE.

I'M SURE YOUR FATHER

WOULD BE PROUD TO KNOW

HOW BRAVELY YOU:

FOUGHT ALONGSIDE ME.

YOU FOUGHT AS A KNIGHT.
