Storm Of War
Emperor of Thorn
The emperor of Thorn is a man of late middle age. The current Empress Consort is his young newlywed, Essie. She is his 4th wife, the others having died under mysterious circumstances. He is quick to anger and quick to laugh. A man of controlled excesses. He has expanded the territory of the Empire greatly since the assassination that killed his father and older brother 10 years ago. He was quick to punish those responsible, not even waiting for a public trial. Their execution was public and extremely long. Of course, they protested their innocence throughout the torture.
