King Garik Eridani II is the current ruler of the Kingdom of Gwynne.

Now elderly, sickly, and weak; King Garik's reign has seen several scandals. The most notorious is the Elderly King's marriage to his much-younger, second wife; Queen Ileosa.

When King Garik assumed the Crimson Throne in 1218/6 as the 23rd monarch of the venerable Eridani Dynasty, he was seen as a wise and energetic young ruler who would do great things for his kingdom. That was thirty years ago.

It was only a few years ago, the elderly king became sad and lonely. His first wife Myranda had recently died of a fever, and his eldest son Garth had died in a bizarre riding accident several years earlier, while out hunting with his brother Gerold.

This tragic series of events was the opportunity that Queen Ileosa used in securing the King's hand in marriage.

It is common gossip, that the kingdom of Gwynne is actually controlled by Garik's ambitious son; the Crown-Prince Gerold Eridani, who is also rumored to be a secret lover of Queen Ileosa.

For many decades, King Garik's most loyal servant at Court has been his Seneschal; Neolandus Dhoru.
