A conniving monarch, who just wants to make the world—or Generica, at least—his


French Jerk; Head-in-the-Sand Management; Villain with Good Publicity: Downplayed (Not really "Evil," just an asshole)




  • Bit of a two-faced dick
  • Hasn't been able to produce documents proving his supposed distant claim to the Generic throne
  • Has been on pilgrimage to the Holy Lands (ultimately, a PR ploy)
  • Secretly wishes his current wife would hurry up and die, so he can remarry and get to making more heirs

The Rightful High-King of Imperia

  • Post-Old-Empire, Antagonia was the seat of a new High King, for a while; Ref: Franks/Charlemagne—covered Antagonia, Generica, Überland, Naboria
  • Rivalry with Überland over who represents their legacy more-directly
  • Pushed to assert by the Druids via his Loremaster?
  • Father "The Traitor" was first Gronwyard king; a good start—"inciting incident"
