Default Rothgar Vellfyre

Name: Rothgar Vellfyre
Titles, if any: King of Edolon, Hammer of Elonia, etc.
Age and Birthdate: 8, 8M, 268 (age: 62? )
Hometown/Area of Origin: Tor Vellesca, Kingsreach.
Noble House, Affiliations: House Vellfyre, Kingsreach and all that he surveys.
Position at Court: KING.

Appearance: 6’2, a powerful build with broad shoulders and muscle despite his age. He came to the throne a warrior, and a warrior he remained until well past his 50th year. He finally put his sword down 7 years ago but has not withered, nor has he gone to fat. He still trains his squires somewhat though most of their daily fighting is against other knights. Can still throw an axe with deadly accuracy.

PB: Robert Redford

Personality: Rothgar laughs loud, plays hard, and fights even harder. He is ruthless with his enemies and sometimes even with his friends, placing the welfare of House Vellfyre and Edolon as a whole above any other concerns. His own ambition, too, might sometimes get the better of him.

He is fond of his family, warm with some and more distant to others but will always remind them who is wearing the crown if need be. He treats his squires and former squires, as well as his household knights and lords in a similar way- occasionally maybe even better as there have been many years where he sees his house-men and soldiers far more than he did his family.
His closest companions are often his house-men, the Crownsguard, Keegan (who squired for him), Bryce, William Wolfe (also former squire), and his current mistress Lady Raisa of Tal Dragore- the daughter of a landed knight.

Rothgar has the Vellfyre temper, however. When enraged, he will fight to the end- but he is often quick to forgive if, once he's calmed down, the matter seems slight. The worst temper to see him in, however, is a cold fury. If ice is revealed within his usual fire, there is no chance of mercy or forgiveness.

He is officially recalled, but fear of illness makes Rothgar decide his children will spend most of their days in Summerhall, far away from the miasmas of the city- they return in fall/winter but leave for spring. Helaina Vikary, wife of Kadreth, dies from lingering ill-health after a difficult birth the year before.

319: Betrothes Princess Ziamara to Artos Vayth, with the manor of Sevenstreams in her dowry.
320: As the wedding plans commence, Rollant argues with his father over his sister’s arrangement and is banished from court- he goes to Summerhall for a year. Ziamara weds Artos Vayth
321: Knights his son, Jason, who resides mostly in Summerhall.

324: Hosts Queen Lindaraxa of Trimeris. Drags Jason back to sit in on the talks.
325: Sends Keegan and the royal forces north to Zaksebar and Asserya, with Jason nominally in charge as King’s Hand. Valencia is promised to wed a prince of Trimeris, and Bryce’s daughter Rosina to a Meridian prince. His other daughter, Leandra is married to Kyle Seyfert.
326: Negotiations on the exact arrangements of Valencia’s contract drag on, as do the arrangements for Rosina’s nuptials. Kaleb Vellfyre is quietly locked up in a tower after an ‘incident.’
327: His new mistress, Raisa, gives birth to a girl who will be named Cendrine.
328: Eldest (illegitimate) son, Rollant, dies in battle at Abat-Charn in Zaksebar, along with his nephew Garrett. Very late in the year, Ziamara’s husband dies of dysentery in Asserya.
329: Princess Valencia’s betrothal to Prince Royal Jarem Aldarayth-Firuzahn from Trimeris is finalized at long last, and preparations for the wedding begin. The estates of Kingsport are included in the princess’s dowry- Kingsport has served as a seat for men wedding into the Vellfyre clan before, and the previous line’s last heir died in the war. Rosina and Valencia are both wedded by proxy to their new husbands. Prince Jason is captured by the Zakkish and feared lost but is rescued by a small group of men. Rothgar's mistress births a baby boy to be named Jayme.
330: A stand-still is reached as the Zakkish abruptly stop pressing eastward. It allows the main contingent of the troops to return, especially among the highborn heirs whose (at least occasional) presence at home is important. The homecoming combines with the reception of Valencia’s new husband and Rosina’s leave-taking with the Meridian envoys.
