My namesake is Saint Amaranthus, a 3rd century French monk who was buried in Albi, France. In the 7th century, St. Eugenis built a monastary on that site in the Languodoc region of France, I lived in the time of the Troubadours, and fought in the 3rd Crusade (the late 12th century). Upon returning home, my lands were attacked by the Crusaders from the north. I rode among the bands of displaced nobles, known as the Routier. Occitan was my native tongue. I fought the Church of the Wolf, thus the surname Wolfbane. A vassal of the Count of Toulouse, I fought on the side of the Cathars, known as the Good Christians, against their persecution by the Pope.
