King Zephron of Asgamoth

King Zephron of the House of Malvo was the founder of the City-State of Asgamoth.

According to myth, Zephron was a great warrior who, as a young man, encountered a dangerous lion in the wilderness, which attacked him. After a desperate battle, Zephron felled the great beast.

In an act of mercy, Zephron, nursed the gravely wounded lion back to health. For the remainder of his days, that lion became his constant companion, and he took the lionshead as his sigil.

As his fame grew, Zephron eventually became the first ruler of the Asgari people.

He eventually founded the settlement of Asgamoth, which under his rulership, grew into a leading power in the region throughout the Third Age.
