Duke Algrim Pentathar

Algrim Pentathar is a powerful Iskari aristocrat who currently rules the city of Cyrenica.

Algrim is fiercely loyal to the monarchy in Wyn Falas, and he is keenly aware of the Vaas and Cynaran ethnic minorities in his city.

He is well aware that the Pentathar family was chosen mainly for their loyalty, and knows well the fate of previous noble families who ruled this city that rebelled against the Onyx Throne.

Algrim keeps the peace in Cyrenica by not showing too much favoritism toward the Iskari nobles at the expense of the local population.

House Pentathar

The Pentathars are one of oldest Iskari noble families, with a lineage that goes "Back to the Boats," as the Iskari proverb says.

In fact, Lord Idris Pentathar; the family Patriarch, was one of King Ilnavel's most trusted Captains during the Forty-Years War, and one of his daughters was later married to one of the King's sons.

In the Year 1068/4, The city of Cyrenica was ruled by Teraxas Strongfist, who along with the Dukes of Rhoyden and Vharia, rebelled against the Onyx Throne, in what became known as the Iskari Civil War.

After the rebels were defeated by Irenicus Blackburn, the Duchy of Cynara was broken into three smaller duchies; Cynara, Deroshar, & Silverdeep, and the ruling House of Strongfist was destroyed. As a reward for his bravery during the conflict; King Irenicus anointed Lord Ironel Pentathar the new Duke of Cynara; a position the family has held ever since.
