User Summary

Emperor Balor is the father of Lugh, Esalen, and grandfather of Areus. Balor was once a chivalrous warrior and Angeerdan's best friend. He and his friend decided to enlist into the Dyneskal military and loyally served their liege, Emperor Nuad. Balor quickly became a general and highly beloved by the people. Jealous of Balor's popularity the emperor Nuad ordered for half of his general's face to be burned. He later declared the torturous act a "testing ordeal" for his vassal's worth.

Balor fell into despair until a woman named Catherine helped him to regain his self-esteem and the couple fell in love. Balor wanted to kill Nuad and managed to defeat him but when he went to strike the final blow his lover stayed his hand. Instead Nuad was spared and forced to abdicate; Balor was named the reigning emperor. Balor immediately sought to abolish the serfs and authored an edict requiring the aristocratic class to donate their riches to the common folk. His decision was met with immediate disdain by corrupt nobles who eventually conspired with the demoted Nuad and his branch of Dyneskal nobility. They poisoned the emperor's holy wine. Catherine sensed that a plot was afoot and willingly drank the toxic wine to save Balor. She died soon after.

Consumed by rage and sorrow, Balor forever lost his empathy for his fellow man and gave into his rage. He avenged Catherine's death by slaughtering Nuad and the majority of the nobility. Some time later Zofor told him of a prophecy of his descendants killing him. He immediately ordered for the death of his children and grandchildren, first arranging the death of his daughter, Esalen. He then personally quelled the rebellion led by his eldest son Lugh.He was killed by his grandson Areus.
