The King's Man and the Faithful
A View of Truth by Azrudaur
Azrudaur, Adunzil, Amlarad, Oldgrove, Elgaraen, Aelfgyth, Steora, Araenion, Celebhir, Barandorn, Khalis, Galvathalion, Rily, Cuwath, Anglachelm
Good and evil are matters of perception.
A cronicle of the sundered strands of the decendants of Numenor, the lies of Elves and the quest to regain the birthright of Men.
Reader... herein is the record of several lives, enmeshed together in ways unexpected. The fabric of truth and lies, good and evil is woven thus. From this cloth history is cut and fabricated.
Elves have written the history of the West. Is it true - or is history the preserve of the victors ?
Read, and judge me if you wish. But in doing so, remember, each life only holds part of the whole. And not all eyes see clearly.
The King's Men and Allies
Azrudaur, the Burnt Man. A Lion of Queen Beruthiel. A Fell-captain of the South. A man of taste and refinement.
Cuwath, the Dunlander. A rising light in the service of Azrudaur
Rily, the Crow. Carrion like his name. The undertaker of unpleasant tasks.
The Eorlings, Peasantry of Rohan
Aelfgyth 'Gyth' . A song-weaver from Rohan. Student of music under Azrudaur
Steora. Bound with Gyth under a suspected curse from an 'Aelf Wicce' (elven witch). Does what is needed to get by.
The Ragged Men / the Chetwood Gang
Oldgrove, master Oldgrove. Meddling, self-appointed benefactor of Steora
Amlarad, the Helm-Giffer. Apparent leader of the 'Chetwood Gang'.
Elgaraen, the Northern Woman. More trouble than she is worth.
