Emperor Malthin II
Emperor Malthin Astalles
Malthin Astalles grew up as the second child to Hatan and Eza Astralles from an early age and with no real aspect of gaining the throne and no desire to have it. Malthin would excel in school and when he got older and had proven that he was good enough, he was given his province to govern. When The war of Western expansion broke out he was still governing his province but when legion after legion was destroyed, Malthin decided to gather his legions and raised another two auxiliary legions and marched towards the frontline where he was to stay for the entire war. After the war, many expected him to continue in the army where he had shown himself to be a brilliant military leader but to many people's shock he stood down his legions and returned to his province and continued to rule in his province, a province that may have been spared for the fighting but the war had still taken a huge toll on the population. When The Decade of 5 Emperors broke out, even when his sister Empress Krea Astalles died and he tried to stay out and even turned down the throne, even when the rebels killed his aunt Jarin in an ambush and proceeded to kill the newly crowned Empress Elenora Astalles shortly after she took the throne, he once again raised his legions and joined on the side of Emperor Zane Astalles when he marched towards Pearlhal that was under siege, doing the battle Zane was wounded and would later die of his wounds handing over the throne to Malthin who would as the 5th emperor take up the fight against the rebels and would bring a whole new level of fighting to the rebels, he would employ tactics he learned during the previous war. When the civil war ended the huge task of rebuilding began and Malthin would dedicate the rest of his reign to the rebuilding of his nation, 130 years after the war ended, the Empire of Dercia have enjoyed a new golden age.
