The Royals Family Personalities

Recommended Posts

King Marcus Landon and Queen Evangeline Landon gave birth to two sons. The elder of the two, Zacharius Landon would inherit the throne from King Marcus. Zacharius was arranged to marry Lady Vivian Silvalent while Theodore, able to live freely mostly...became the Master of Arms of Ardougne. King Marcus was assassinated in an arson case in the Western Province due to people unhappy with Marcus' rule. 

Because of this, when Zacharius became King, he oppressed the Western Province as much as he could. Theodore would disagree with his brother's heavy-handed methods and wish for his brother to lessen up, but carried on with the commands issued by his brother, regardless. The previous court mage under his parents and brother killed him at an event that opened a new bank in Ardougne. Leonard had issued the court mage be executed by Theodore who performed the task. It was not until five years later that Leonard's mother, Vivian was part of an organization called Snapdragon and so was their court mage that Theodore had executed. Leonard, despite how the people would view him, executed his own mother. 

Eventually, pressured by both the people and the nobles, Leonard left the throne and Theodore rose to it. Leonard had been trying to pacify the nobles along with the inhabitants of the Western Province as most of the labor comes from there, but money trails had been covered where King Leonard was not able to prove that nobles had been pocketing pay to the workers of the West. 

Using examples from his father, brother and nephew, Leonard, despite being untrusting of some members of his council, is carefully planning his reign that will bring both Provinces together.

It came to light that there had been fire in one of the houses in the Western Province and the King and his entourage were burned alive inside with some inhabitants of the Western Province.

Zacharius' rule was heavily stacked against the Western Province. While Theodore was upset that his lost his father in the West, he knew that the entire Province was not to blame and tried to keep his brother's judgment and temper in check.
