The Legend

A somewhat tragic figure, Jon is the rightful heir to the throne, who Mysterion took from his father, the previous king, to be raised elsewhere. He becomes king when he does something with the Sword ("Sword in the Tree"?) which only the rightful king could do. He then brings order to the land by defeating his rivals and other threats — and then tries his best to be a good ruler, assembling the Knights of the Ring to serve as paragons of chivalry. His rule is ultimately undone by the plots and shortcomings of his own followers and family, possibly involving a Love Triangle with his queen and his best knight. His reign comes to an end when he is forced to fight his own traitorous son (and/or nephew).
