An effectively exiled Prince
The second son of the former King of [human kingdom of the alliance], Kyrun Centari is a member of a sorcerer family that is said to have ruled for thousands of years, which claims its lineage to have descended from dragons. (Note: this may or may not be true. Probably not, in fact. However, to say that it is untrue is a crime of heresy and therefore treason.)
Born into this wealth, Kyrun was consistently reminded of what was expected of him, as well as the power he held over others. While he was aware of his responsibility, there is some part of him that is corrupted by it, and he was known as egotistical even amongst his two brothers. The oldest, Erad, was a friend to him, and the two often enjoyed the privileges of the nobility with actions that bordered on hedonism. His younger brother Jodon, was stern and disapproving of his older brothers’ actions, especially when they used their magic to “charm” women. Among the three Jodon was considered the most responsible, and the most prepared to be a ruler. As time went on and their father grew sickly, Kyrun moved away from the hedonistic lifestyle of his brother, and began to manage some aspects of the kingdom. Erad, however, never grew up, and continued to practice his old habits.
To say that things have always been good for the Centari would be presumptuous, but under the recent reign of the Old King Yorn all was well. A competent and benevolent monarch, Yorn was able to organize his kingdom militarily, economically, and even magically in a way that made the elves extremely envious.
However, nothing lasts forever, and Yorn eventually died, gaining the title of “Old King” given to the deceased monarchs of [human kingdom], believed to rule forever in the afterlife. Upon his death, the custom of choosing the most powerful sorcerer led to Kyrun’s older brother, Erad, being chosen. Erad was not only the most powerful at present, but, as judged by the elder wizards, capable of far more power than either of his brothers.
However, while Erad was a powerful sorcerer, he had changed little over the years, and showed none of the competence of his father. Having no interest in politics, he simply followed the commands of a Jokun, a man on the distant fringes of the Centari clan, who possessed little magical power but a massive amount of ambition.
Jodon did not trust Jokun, and asked Kyrun to note his behavior. The advisor would continually choose to benefit the elites of the kingdom, draining what little wealth the lower and middle classes possessed. He pushed for fewer rights, and made capital punishment a recommendation for minor crimes. However, when the people yelled out in anger, it was not Jokun’s name they called to overthrow, it was Erad’s. Jodon believed that Jokun’s intent was to create a revolution, overthrow the king himself, and then become a hero in the eyes of the people, effectively becoming their monarch.
However, Jodon presumed too much familial loyalty when he told Erad of the advisor’s plans. Erad, who was wrapped around Jokun’s finger, “gave Jodon his own territory” on the outskirts of the kingdom, where the elves would attack first if any war began. Kyrun, who was recognized as an accessory, was sent to the peninsula, where he was placed in charge of the city.
Kyrun could not object, as this “exile” was carefully disguised as “giving him his own land”. Now, he considers himself the only ruler of the city. He does not know what has happened to his main kingdom as of now, and frequently wonders. However, he has not received any information yet. The only thing he knows is that he is very worried.
