Lamorak, Consort of the Queen Edit
Lamorak is not the king of the Stormwood's unseelie fey, but as the consort Queen Gwyar, he has been acting as such for the last 400 years. His role is akin to a war chief, and he is referred to as Ceannasaí (commander, pronounced kan-na-See) by most of the court.
He is a powerful, Sidhe warrior and bard, and was once beautiful beyond even the Sidhe norm. Lamorak has the capacity for great wisdom and strategy but has a developed a hair-trigger temper over the last few centuries. In the years since Gwyar was kidnapped by the dragon Vossaprus, Lamorak's legendary appearance has suffered, and he is now merely staggeringly handsome. The commander is utterly heartsick and fearful that he will never see his beloved Gwyar again.
If anyone is foolhardy enough to try to challenge Lamorak, they will face a merciless Sidhe with a wealth of equipment and several thousand years of battle experience.
Now that Gwyar has been rescued, Lamorak has gratefully stepped down from his governing role, leaving that soul-draining business to his lady queen.
In addition to his primal magic and combat prowess, Lamorak can radiate a terrifying aura akin to dragonfear at will. He is also able to influence other creatures' fortune and cloud their minds without using spells.
As ancient Sidhe, Lamorak and Gwyar know much of the history of the world - or at least their corner of it. Any information gleaned from conversations with Lamorak and members of the court will have a distinctly fey spin applied to it, but there is much that can be learned. Lamorak is considered a primary source of information on The Decline, and has provided a small, but instructive bit of information about Kela as well. Lamorak referred to the curse of The Decline as "the Severing" and claims it occurred one full major moon cycle after the four elemental dragons (Vossaprus and his kin) were created. He seems to believe that the naga are responsible, and talked about Vossaprus and the other three elemental dragons as artificially created parasites rather than being a part of the natural world, like other dragons are.
Lamorak also told of a time thousands of years ago when the modern naga were preceded by a significantly more powerful kind of naga that is now gone from the world. He called those predecessors to the naga, 'Sarrukh,' and compared them as a cloud giant to a modern elf in terms of power and connection to the world.
