The Middle Isles
King of Aquona is Rorem the Deliberate, so named for being known as more thoughtful than several of his recent predecessors. He is a middle-aged widow, with his wife dying some 10 years ago of sickness. He has two sons that have survived to adulthood: Ethred, the oldest and Brand, the youngest. Another son was lost to him years ago.
Despite his advancing years, he is still strong in body, though a fall off his horse several years ago badly damaged both his legs, and is the cause for his severe limp.
