Emperor of Irminsûl
Emperor / Dreamer / Game-player / Duellist
Easily the most feared man in Irminsûl, Arthodis gained the throne by killing three elder brothers and their heirs. As a young man he had a reputation for utter ruthlessness, but his attitude in his waning years has softened a great deal. He has few enemies, having outlived most of them.
When tensions between Nástrandir and Vartari reached breaking point after the death of Thora’s eldest son, he headed off a potential house war by removing the heirs from Irminsûl and declaring them hostages against the houses’ good behaviour. Notably, this has allowed him to raise the children away from the hatred fomented by their houses.
