Emperor of Ardania
Little is known of the Emperor of Ardania. Even the oldest person you talk to tells you that Couladin has sat on the throne since before their time. He does not make many public appearances. The few that get to visit him in his throne room have to go through several magical barriers just to make it to the bottom step leading up to his throne, none have been known to attempt that first step. He is known to be Just to the people. Any uprisings or threats to his lands are crushed without any hesitation or mercy by the massive army he has built. Though his power is seen to be absolute, he seems to be content with his small part of the world. Never has there be any attempts to take over lands outside of Ardania, even when opportunities arise to do just that. Though he is aloof and seems to not care what the day to day operations entail, life is good for the people of his land. Nick names for the Emperor, said out of his hearing of course are: The Ageless one, The Undying, The Unseen. After obtaining a book from the Band of the Red Hand, people have seen an increase in the comings and goings of the Castle. One can only speculate on what that means.
