The 14th king of Ralas, widely remembered as the "great wanderer." Axilar became king at a young age, and even as a child loved the sea and sailing. When his father was slain fighting Corsairs from Tar Vielca, the king was a young boy. Axilar desperately wanted to explore the regions of the unknown world and perhaps find the home of the pirates who had killed his father. He did not find Narrow Isle, but instead found the continent of Avokhar. Axilar soon gathered a huge armada of ships and began a long pilgrimage far to the south to explore the unknown lands of Avokhar. He left his older son Andros to rule in his stead and took his younger son Kendros with him on the journey. Axilar sailed so far south he rounded the bottom of the continent of Avokhar and named the frozen waters there the Cape of Black Ice. Along his journey, Axilar explored the Shining Sea, then landed and explored inland in northern Avokhar. There he discovered the hidden Sky-Valley of the Hellfire Mountains. In those mountains and valleys, Axilar founded the earliest Ralani settlements that would eventually became the cities of Shard and Kendar, which would someday grow into a realm of enormous wealth and power. He eventually sailed all the way around the continent of Avokhar, eventually stopping at all of the Seven Cities of Brass along the Bronze Coast, befriending the Eloysians who dwelt there. Axilar left his son Kendros to rule the colony he had founded, and returned to Ralas a great hero.

For centuries after, Ralas became fabulously wealthy from the trade between their kingdom and the Eloysians.
