Water or Blood
The Lord who watched his city drown, he saved much of his population listening to soothsayers and enforced an evacuation against the will of many of his people.
He is known for hard decisions, for careful thinking, taste in much younger women (his fifth wife is 19 to his 85), and consulting his personal oracle and daughter (Lady Gonna) before any action. He owns a potent relic of Bloodsteel Plate Armor, and few doubt his capacity with it.
Few know that he is also an ancient bloodmage, and the highest ranked member of the Prime Cohort still alive. He has been acting behind the scenes since the first emperors demise to right the wrongs that plague his legacy.
