#21 – Calaris den Raud

| November 22, 2011 | 0 Comments

Calaris den Raud is the Crown Prince of the kingdom of Ardenspire. This is a kingdom that has been at peace for two generations, ever since his grandfather, Alden den Fevre, conquered the last of his enemies and crushed them beneath his heel. It’s been a benign peace, however. Calaris’ father, Raud den Alden, is an excellent peacetime king, and his people know prosperity and security.

This means that there’s not a lot for his sons to do. Calaris is the eldest of three, and his next younger brother is the impulsive, inventive and somewhat un-princely Rissandir. The youngest, Lennick, is only three, and therefore isn’t very interesting yet.

Calaris finds value in stability and security. He knows he’s next in line for the throne, but he’s not interested in taking that responsibility yet. He’s risk-averse, conservative, and often bound to tradition.

When his brother decides to do something risky, ridiculous, and dangerous, Calaris knows it’s time for him to step in.
