Nine-hundred and twenty years ago, a young Sorianeth Trumonde journeyed to the icy peninsula of Delrin with a small army. He had been sent by his grandfather, the mighty soulwarped hero Aevitas Trumonde, to bring peace to the warring Kaevalonian tribes that had settled there. With a great deal of aggression inside of him, he was hellbent on destroying his enemies.
It took Sorianeth all of three years to bring the barbarian tribes to heel. Near the end, some surrendered, rather than face his might. It came down to him and Skaalgorm the Iron King, facing off in an open field. Though he took the man’s leg, he was merciful. Sorianeth had plans contrary to why he had been sent there initially.
Taking the barbarian King’s daughter as his bride, the young man crowned himself as the first King of a unified Delrin. He ordered a great capital city to be built immediately. With a legion of soldiers, who had grown incredibly loyal to him, and a horde of subjugated tribes, he could withstand any retaliation that his home may launch against him. Fortunately, it never came.
Sorianeth was a firm ruler, establishing and enforcing laws upon a lawless people, he was dubbed "the Breaker". He and his wife had three children, who continued on the Trumonde royal line. A real integration of the Nylevranians that had come with him and the Kaevalonian people took many generations, but led to the strong Delrish people of today.
While the Trumonde’s of Nylevran faded to time, the Trumonde Kings of Delrin were forever immortalized as great leaders. The line is now at its end, and the final Trumonde as Queen, the Vulkan line has been placed into power. While Jargos has thus proven a great leader, the Trumonde mold could never be shaken from the country and the hearts of its people.
Today, Delrin and Nylevran bear no ill will against one another. Ironically, the Delrish play a large part in the High Court. The younger prince of Delrin, Benjamin Vulkan, recently studied law here. He was a bright young man. I believe you can always talk things over, as Nylevran should have done with Sorianeth. That was nearly a millennium ago, yet I still feel the strained relationship could have been avoided entirely.
