Emeror Helroc Balen
The late emperor of the Civer Empire
The tottering, heavily bearded former emperor was somewhat well-regarded by the people of the Civer Empire for lowering taxes to very low levels, which made him unpopular among the officials and nobles of the realm. He was a former bard who was the youngest son of the last emperor, and was very focused on diplomacy and improving relations between the nations. High Chancellor Rytual was one of his adventuring companions, a former warlord, as was General Tarish, a fighter.
