King Jarot ir'Wynarn
The last ruler of Galifar, King Jarot was driven to paranoia by dreams that troubled him of threats to his rule. Jarot suspected every power, both foreign and internal, of conspiring to overthrow his beloved kingdom. Everyone from the Dragonmarked Houses to the elves of Aerenal to the dragons of Argonnessen were plotting to depose him. Because of this paranoia he began secret military projects to reinforce the infrastructure of Galifar. These projects included the warforged and the floating fortresses in Breland. He also began a massive military buildup in each of the Five Nations.
Sadly, the conflict that King Jarot prepared for he would never see. When the king died, the crown should have passed to Princess Mishann of Cyre, his eldest daughter. Instead Prince Thalin, Prince Kaius and Princess Wroann rejected the appointment of their older sister. Though Prince Wrogar, King Jarot’s fourth child and Governor-prince of the nation of Aundair supported his sister, it was not enough and soon the Five Nations used the armies King Jarot had amassed along with the new technologies to wage war against one another.
