He is currently 34 years old, 6 foot tall with dark short brown hair and eyes. He rules his Kingdom fairly and believes in the precepts of Torm. Despite the fact that the Kingdom of Laskea is considered an Absolute Monarchy, King Alwyn Nede tends to seek counsel from the other nobles of Laskea and conferring with the Clergy of Torm before enacting any Law or Edict. He is served by Morrice Barrett, the Principle Secretary to the King, and Barriltar Bhandraddon, High Priest and Pontiff of Torm.

King Alwyn Nede is known to be a fair and good man with little patience for drama or court intrigue or power-plays.

King Nede personally led the Laskeans in concert with Elven forces to drive back the Zhents from Estrya. During the conflict, Queen Nilone Beivyre-Nede would oftentimes visit Alwyn in his war camp to encourage him and to improve the morale of the troops. It is during one of these visits, in the month of Miaxis in 2268, that Queen Beivyre-Nede became pregnant with their first child. She remained in the Capital of Sestatrea until Alwyn's return in Preeht of 2269 after having routed the Zhent forces, causing Zhentil Keep to sue for peace.

They fell in love and were soon married in the early spring of 2272, with the announcement of Queen Aerilaya-Nede's pregnancy coming shortly thereafter. The citizens of Laskea breathed a collective sigh of relief at the news of a potential heir and are anxious awaiting news of the birth, expected to be either in late autumn or early winter.
