King Balthizar Xantheras

King Balthizar was the first monarch from the Xantheras Dynasty of Orel.

In the year 371/5, Balthizar succeeded King Royce, after he was slain at the naval Battle of Ekkryn Sound and his Dynasty ended.

Balthizar was one of the greatest sea-captains of the Orellian Navy and had not only explored much of the world’s oceans, but on many occasions, had fought bravely against the hated Thûlians.

Balthizar’s ship was nearby the King’s royal war-galley when it was sunk after being set afire by the enemy. Balthizar always regretted that he was unable to save either the king or his two sons, all of whom were lost at sea during that fateful Battle.
