History:

King Timothy accomplished much in his two-hundred-year reign over Lyndaria. The dragon Mynos gave the king his magical Crystal, which prolonged the monarch's life well beyond the normal years of a man. Unfortunately, Timothy watched as his entire family lived, grew old, and died--all while he'd ceased to age.

When King Timothy was first crowned, Lyndaria had four rulers, one for each realm, north, south, east, and west. His vision was to see one united country, under one banner and one king. In order to do this, he needed to unite the realms. At the behest of Mynos, the king knighted an elite band of men, the Wolverines, to go into these realms and negotiate a union. The Wolverines had their swords enchanted by the Crystal of Mynos, to ensure King Timothy's men would be a formidable force indeed. Just as the Crystal speaks to it's wielder, so too do the swords of the Wolverines speak to their masters. And just as the Crystal enhances the magical ability of it's user, the weapons of the knights do the same, magnifying their sword fighting ability to be much stronger and faster than a man with a mundane sword.

This served two purposes; intimidation and protection. King Timothy was a noble and just ruler, however once the sovereigns of the realms bent to his vision of unification and swore fealty to him, there were a few attempts on his life. However three factors ultimately protected him. The swords of the Wolverines, the Crystal of Mynos, and Mynos himself.

Timothy ordered coins to be minted for the new united kingdom of Lyndaria, embossing them with the face of his wife, Queen Nisselle, as a last testament of his love for her. Since their circulation, these coins are now known as gold ladies, silver ladies, and copper ladies.

It wasn't until the Crystal of Mynos was stolen from the castle that a viable attempt on King Timothy's life could be realized. The Crystal was the only thing sustaining his life, and with it's absence, the sovereign began to age rapidly. It wasn't long before the years of his life caught up to him, and King Timothy perished of extreme old age.

However he died without an heir, as he'd outlived all of his progeny.

Trusting the dragon to crown the king's choice as successor, the people of Lyndaria rejoiced when Sir Benjamin of Stollinshire, a Wolverine knight, was crowned as the new Ruler of the Four Realms. King Brennan himself is descended from King Benjamin.

Ever since Timothy established the Wolverines, they have survived throughout the centuries, passing their enchanted swords down through the families, from father to son or from grandfather to grandson. King Timothy is still regarded as the most beloved king of Lyndaria, even centuries after his death.

Quote of Note:

"You know as well as I that I am dying. Even now I can feel my body wasting away. I have had a good, long life, Mynos. I am ready for death." ~~King Timothy
