Character Profile: King Kaas of the Elves

Hair Color: Dark Brown

Eye Color: Blue

Status: Ruler of the Elven Kingdom

Family: Wife ~ Queen Loara; Daughter ~ Princess Derekah

Age: 734

History:

King Kaas is an ally to King Brennan of Lyndaria. The two monarchs realized early on that their kingdoms needed to be united in order to fight the threat of Queen Darragh and her mighty armies. Therefore, King Brennan's son, Prince Nicholas, and King Kaas's daughter, Princess Derekah, have been betrothed, thus ensuring the two kingdoms will become one united empire under the banner of Lyndaria.

There have been mixed feelings regarding this bold move, as elves are not met with favor by the peoples of Lyndaria. Their magic is feared and thus shunned throughout the kingdom, however no one can deny the need for magic in the war that is to come.

King Kaas was never actually meant to become the king of the elves. He was second-born in the elven royal house. His older sister Kendra was supposed to ascend the throne after their father stepped down. However, Kendra fell in love with a human Wolverine, Sir Darryn of Winterborne, and decided her love for him was more important than her duty to her people.

Therefore, Kendra and Kaas's father King Leopold, disowned her, not only because she turned her back on her fellow elves, but because she decided to live her life with a human.

Kendra abducated her throne to her brother Kaas, and thus he ascended to become king.

King Kaas is the leader, not only of the elves, but of their powerful army, the Army of Magi, a legion of elves who are well-versed in the use of magic. Only elves and those of elven descent have magical ability in their blood. Dragons have this trait as well, but humans do not, unless they had an elf in their heritage at some point in the past. Even a small amount of elven blood would give a human a fraction of magical ability. They would be limited to what they could do, however, they would be able to small magical tasks. The more elven blood you have in your veins, the stronger you are in magic, unless, of course, you are wielding the Crystal of Mynos, which would magnify your power to be hundreds of times stronger.

Even the person with a drop of elven blood in their veins could become very powerful indeed if they held the Crystal.

With the betrothal of their children, King Kaas and King Brennan have banded their people together, protecting Castle Templestone from the threat of the Dark Knights.

We pray their magic will be enough to hold Queen Darragh at bay.

Quote of Note:

"We always knew the dragon deliberately put an elven spell on the scroll so that not just anyone could read it and wake him." ~~King Kaas
