The Aslann Family
The Edrean Royal Family
With heads raised high and a roar of might, the Aslanns lead, protect and fight.
The Founder of the AslannsThe founder of the Aslanns was a man of the name Chren, he was said to be a descender of one of the people who built The Shrine of Aralican. Chren came from a rather wealthy trading family, but the family was nothing more than that. They were known as the Sellers. Chren broke loose from the family, he wanted more for their area, the most eastern parts Morlea had few leaders compared to the middle east parts and the western areas. Many small villages tended to war with one another as well as with the Iwachi. Bandits of both human and Iwachi descent terrorized the area as well and most other lords turned their heads and did nothing to help as the guild of bandits had an impressive man-count and didn't hesitate with killing if they met any resistance. Chren was given a large sum of money from his family before he set out to change the world. He built a wall around Bech and hired guards to patrol as well as recruit an army to combat the bandit scourge. His effort did little in the beginning, the wall was ruined while it was constructed many times and some guards were killed. But his efforts made the people rally around him and they set out to combat the bandits armed to the teeth with weapons bought by Chren. After some years the bandits were driven away and Chren and his family were hailed as heroes, mostly the young Chren though. He got the nickname of the Eastern Lion. The citizens of the area that Chren now protected were grateful and they named him the leader of Bech. This title was later converted into Lord and Chren decided to translate his nickname into the old language and called himself Chren Aslann, which carried on to his children and became the family name.
Zuree's father was chosen as the successor of the King as his grandchild and for his work to secure the peace after riots threatened to break the fragile truce between Ildres and Edrea.
The Aslanns have lead Edrea since the day of its founding. That means they have been the Kings and Queens of Edrea for almost 800 years.
