@whiskeysailor absolutely. Ancient people were crazy about bright colors because of how rare they were.
@ALWETP made me think about how in modern times we think of Greco-Roman sculptures were just marble instead of painted bright colors
Fun sword fact: all the swords you see in "serious" (tone-wise) fantasy like Game of Thrones are much more of a modern aesthetic than a medieval one. Medieval aesthetic would be considered downright gaudy by today's standards.
Dyes were expensive and therefore a sign of wealth, so no nobleman would be caught dead with an undecorated black scabbard or an unengraved, un-inlayed blade as long as he could afford to dye his scabbard bright colors and inlay gold or silver into his sword. The image is an example of what might be more typical for a reasonably wealthy nobleman around the time of the Battle of Agincourt.
stop making main characters some kind of aristocrat. i have literally zero sympathy for some landlord bitch who got kicked out of his lucrative exploitation gig by a more cartoonishly evil landlord bitch.
