Robin Hood needed a priest to perform the wedding ceremony for one of his men, Alan-a-Dale, and his sweetheart, in defiance of the Bishop of Hereford. Friar Tuck, although jovial, had some issues with authority, especially if it was corrupted. The merry band in Sherwood Forest were loyal to King Richard the Lion-Hearted -and this period of time was actually before friars were in England, so some parts of the legend don't quite fit. But I like the overall idea. Friar Tuck loved ale (in moderation), was somewhat fat, and had some martial skills, in addition to being a devoted Christian. I hope I can live up to that standard (I need to get out my archery stuff and do some target practice).
