Englishman Christopher Long was a professional soldier who traveled to Magedburg to join the USE Army—not the Swedish forces directly under Gustavus Adolphus, as did most mercenaries from the British Isles. Long had been part of the Spanish force that invaded Thuringia and was defeated by the Americans near Eisenach. In fact, the Englishman was one of the survivors of the destruction of the Wartburg Castle. He'd come away from the experience convinced that the trade of war was about to undergo a drastic transformation—and thus had placed himself at the service of those who seemed to be the principal agents of that change. Long’s behavior would have bordered on treason. Unlike most mercenary officers, Long was quite willing to accept the rambunctious behavior of the CoC-influenced enlisted soldiers in the USE army, as the price for gaining the experience he wanted.
