Duke Varek Bracken

Varek Bracken was a powerful Iskari noble and ruler of the Duchy of Hennara, who along with the Dukes of Cynara and Varia, 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 Hennara was broken into three smaller duchies (Dhalhurst, Hennara, & Rhoyden) led by loyalist nobles and the ruling house of Bracken was destroyed. Duke Varek was slain in battle along with thee of his four sons. His youngest son was captured and spent the rest of his life exiled on the isle of Greymeet.
