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

TaboosDon't break am oath to him, or a promise of high value
Born in Oestopti City, one of the Twin Capitals on now-Theydim,
He was an Arle before the Unification Wars. By the end of the Unification Wars, he was High King.
Accomplishments & AchievementsUnified 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 & EmbarrassmentsHe 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.
MotivationMagnus 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.
Savvies(these will be given more details later, leaving their CD10 name just to remind me of these) Athletics
One Hand Weapon and Shield
Polearm and Shield
IneptitudesMagnus 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 StateMines 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 ContactsHis 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)
