Physical Description

General Physical Condition

Identifying Characteristics

Wilads often has a black line visible on his neck, from the base of his ear to his collarbone. This is a physical mark of the magic often shared with him by his husband, Second King Coulta.

Special abilities

Because his husband, Coulta, the current Second King of Phelin, is one of the Formerly Cursed, Wildas is periodically granted some of Coulta's magic. This allows him to understand languages he has never learned, and enhances his hearing. The magic also physically marks him with a thin black line that flows from the base of his ear, usually ending near or along his collarbone.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Wildas was born the eldest son of Grand King Deandre of Phelin, making him the heir to the throne of the Grand King of Phelin from birth. He was raised in the castle in the capital city of Ryal, but from an early age traveled about the land with various members of his family and the royal court so that he would be known to the people of Phelin prior to his rise to the throne. This is how he met the people he would eventually marry, following the Phelinian Royal Marriage tradition: Coulta, Myri, and Anil.

In Year 580, the same year Wildas met and married his spouses, Phelin was attacked by the necromantic emperor of Dyrai, seeking land and resources not otherwise available to the island nation. During this short but violent war, known as Varin's War, Grand King Deandre was assassinated and Wildas became Grand King.

Gender Identity





Because he was the heir to the throne of the Grand King of Phelin, Wildas receieved the best tutoring available in diplomacy, strategy, warfare, history, religion, and finances. He also developed an enjoyment in literature. His siblings received similar educations modified to meet their future needs.


Wildas is the current Grand King of Phelin.

One of the worst moments in Wildas's life was being forced to watch as his father was murdered before him on the battlefield during Varin's War.
