Arch-Duke Viktor Teraknian

Viktor Teraknian was a former Ralani noble who fled from the terrible War of the Celadon, sailed south to Avokhar, and eventually founded the City-State of Sasserine in the year 553 of the Sixth Age.

Lord Teraknian's descendants took on the title of "Arch-Duke" and formed the Teraknian Dynasty. Teraknian was married to Lady Sasserine, who was later slain by a Black Dragon named Zelkarune, who attacked the colonists soon after they landed. The city of Sasserine was later named in her honor.

After he became ruler of the Sasserine colony, disagreements arose between Viktor and Surabar the Spellmason. Soon after, Surabar left the colony to form the city of Caldera.

During his reign, Viktor ordered construction of Castle Teraknian, and later, the infamous "Arch of Teraknian;" a high, stone bridge over the harbor entrance to the city.
