Prince Kendros Sanborn

Kendros Sanborn was the youngest son of Axilar Sanborn and the first ruler of the Ralani colony of Kendar.

Kendros, along with his father, founded the Colony of Kendar in the year AR -64. Over the next thirty years, Kendros greatly expanded the colony, founding four more cities in the Sky-Valley he discovered beyond the Hellfire Mountains; they were named Axilon, Kendar City, Highspire, and Dragonloft. He survived many battles, defeating large tribes of Tasloi, Troglodytes, and Gnolls that inhabited the region known today as the Rockdale.

Kendros and his fledgling colony were lucky, in that the largest power in the region; Sha'Dur, was recovering from a devastating 60-year conflict with Shorafa known as the War of Scorching Flame. That war ended three years before Axilar landed on Avokhar, and the weakness of Sha'Dur allowed the Ralani to build their colony without serious interruption.

Upon his return to the colonies after his journey to the Seven Cities of Brass; King Axilar warned Kendros about the growing threat of the Kingdom of Eloysia. Kendros immediately used his skills regarding fortifications, that he had learned in Ralas, to close off the main southern entrance to the sky-valley. This proved to be a very prudent decision. For nearly twenty years, Kendros and his engineers labored to complete the Fortress of Ironspike. But when it was completed, it was impregnable.

At the time of his death, he appointed five great noble families to rule; calling them the Sky-Lords of Kendar. One Lord came from each of the five cities of Kendar. He further decreed that all future Sky-Lords would be appointed by a representative voting body called the Kendarum; an elected body that would wield the true power.

Kendros is fondly remembered today as the true founder of the Republic of Kendar and is a great hero to the Kendari people.
