Magnus the Red-Eyed

High King Magnus (a.k.a. the Red-Eyed)

This entire article is heavily under construction, I am spending most of my time writing down the big ideas and then nailing down what more minor details will be to sticking around.
"My parents didn't name me Magnus. I named myself. Magnus held control of nearly a third of Theydim, and stayed in power for fortty-six years. My ambitions are greater, but other High Kings fell within a handfull of years after unifying the everyone under their banner."
Magnus the Red-Eyed was the most recent High King of Theydim, and among his recorded deeds, he unified the land and reigned for thirty-two years before his death.

Biography

Early Life

Born in Oestopti City, one of the Twin Capitals on now-Theydim,

Education

Employment

He was an Arle before the Unification Wars. By the end of the Unification Wars, he was High King.

Accomplishments & Achievements

Unified Theydim under one banner. Some Arles have grumbled he had done so by withholding raw materials unless they agreed, and others joined his Unified Theydim to gain the protection from his forces from Arlings outside of the Unified Theydim who may raise "aggressive tensions"(find word later).

Failures & Embarrassments

He had to give up a lover when he married the Arle of Feroia's sister before the Unification Wars, though some have rumored that her marriage to another Arle was quickly planned considering she gave birth to a child within the first year of her marriage.  

Personality Characteristics

Motivation

Magnus wanted to become High King before the other countries/nations/political powers would invade and take control of Thydian Arlings, and had difficulties because Theydim is a region with a bunch of feuding Arlings, so he was using diplomatic ties through marriage and trade to accompany his military skills.
Magnus also wanted to be remembered. Glory or something.

Ineptitudes

Magnus is not good at handling stress
Would rather be on the road than stay in a city, frequently gets into arguements with his wife over how little time he actually spends in the Thydian Court
Arguing with him can be like argung with a wall
He's a war leader, not a "peacetime" leader

Wealth & Financial State

Mines providing precious mountain-based metals - manganese, iron, gold/silver(deciding which)
His Arling's materials allows him ties to Arle Stormwatch, and aides Nunciel Great-Cook's in making tools to increase the production of foodstuffs.

Family Ties and Contacts

His wife is Tigh Turlan of Feroia's sister.
Arle Stormwatch favored Unification because his own Arling was the coast, but was dependent on other Arlings in order for his more industrial cities to make products.
Nunciel favored Unification because Magnus was a major provider of raw mineral materials or final products to aid with farming and other forms of food production.
(other Arles to be developed, a few minor ones wanted the protection Magnus would provide, having Capital, Falkhath, and Feroia's militariess, and the navy of Northsea)
 

Mannerisms

Hygiene

Speech

Magnus was generally described as a man who would discuss terms diplomatically, but if diplomacy did not look to approach favoring the Unification of Theydim, the Arle was "reminded" Magnus had the larger, wealthier, better supplied, and better fed, army.
