King Kenderheen. Recently appointed as ruler after a popular uprising overthrew the old administration. Has recently taken a wife.
The former King spoke openly and loudly about defiance against the Final Empire, sending troops across the border to attack Imperial garrisons for years. The country, war-weary and sick of getting their sons back in pieces or not at all, overthrew him and put in his place a diplomat in open negotiations with the Empire for the country’s surrender.
Few types of trees survive in this new world, and Jendeen is one of the last forested lands. The lumber grown there is of better quality than you can get most places.
