The Dark Bargain
The Black King
The Black King is the man who freed Thraen from Kaeltian Rule. He has ruled since then, which was over 1,000 years ago. Nobody knows what he looks like, because on the rare occasion when he leaves his castle, he is dressed in Spiked Black Iron Full Plate. He is guarded by a group of 13 immortal individuals called The Black Guard. They also wear Black Iron armor. His provinces are ruled over by 7 ageless individuals known as The Black Knights. They are not immortal, and many have been killed over the millennia, but they have a tendency to reappear a few weeks later. Some have been deemed unworthy, and they have been replaced by others.
There are rumors that his endless age and power is from a bargain with Devils, however, there is no proof that these are true.
