A Song of Sea and Storm
Sun Emperor Lionel Lockyear (Deceased)
Former Emperor of Ur-Vaalbara
Hero to his people, villain to his vassals, Lionel Lockyear was a dividing figure in imperial politics.
He was assassinated during a dinner with the winners of the Sun Tourney: Adalbrecht Ashmead, Bethan Kerrich, Thloyd Kerrich, King Tolen Adavaar, and Sir Worth of Benjoy. It is unknown if any of the Tournament victors plotted his demise, but with the demise of Adalbrecht Ashmead the list is growing shorter.
When the Sun Emperor died, his people burned the streets in grief for his passing. The smallfolk weep still.
