Duke Kalfus Mandrake

Kalfus Mandrake wasa powerful Iskari noble and ruler of the Duchy of Varia, who along with the Dukes of Cynara and Hennara, broke away from the Kingdom of Cyrendar in the year 1068/4.

The war began with the death of King Ilcanar Cyrenäe II, who was poisoned by Alokkair’s agents. The king died without a rightful heir and soon disputes arose as to the proper royal successor, fueled by Alokkair’s treachery. For twenty years the bitter Iskari Civil War raged between the four opposed factions before all were united under one banner by King Ikharos Blackburn in the year 1087/4. After the war's end, the Duchy of Varia was broken into four smaller duchies; Barstow, Stormchapel, Randivik, & Varia led by loyalist nobles and the ruling house of Mandrake was destroyed. Duke Kalfus and two of his sons were slain in battle, a third son was executed.
