Descended from the great King Doric, King Adelbern is well-liked by the citizens of Ascalon. His easy demeanor and battlefield heroics secured his spot as one of the most popular kings in the history of the walled nation.
In his younger days, Adelbern was the champion of his guild, Ascalon's Chosen. Tales of his feats during the Guild Wars are told and retold today—the enemies he fought growing larger and fiercer as the stories are passed from one mouth to the next.
He's older now, and though he's a well-liked king, his insistence that the army can hold back the beasts from the north has started the people whispering to each other in the streets. Not everyone agrees with the king on this matter. Making matters worse, Prince Rurik, the king's eldest son and heir to the throne, is among those who criticize Adelbern's policies. And though he is close to his son, the king and the prince often do not see eye to eye.
King Adelbern (born either 1010 or 1011 AE) was once a great war hero of Ascalon. Because of his actions during the Guild Wars, he was crowned king by the people's demand despite not being next in line for the royal crown. Because of this, royalists have formed in attempt to dethrone Adelbern.
