Mental characteristics

Personal history

Glerigh was born as the heir to the previous king of Etha. His youth was spent as many of the Ethain nobility did. He would show as a fearsome warrior when he joined the army in defending against the Hyun raiders from the east. As he assumed the kingship, though, he found himself in charge of a state that was lacking much central authority. He recognized the threats on his borders, such as the Hyun raiders in the east, Ethernian raiders in the north, and pirates and Nivagran raiders that came by sea in the south. He desired to strengthen royal power to deal with these, but he found himself stymied by nobles at every turn. So went much of his reign: slowly building up a power-base in his country, seeing wild success among the merchants and traders who appreciated his safeguarding of the sea lanes. In his later years he finally managed to break the stalemate, putting down a large noble revolt that threatened his position. His reformation of the kingdom would be improved upon by his daughter and her successors, eventually paving the roots for the modern Ethain state.

Education

He was educated by the tutors of the royal family and by clerics of high rank.
