Brief History: Before Blagden married Anemone Nev’vlar and became King of Sha’dar, even before he stepped foot on Arlsyn, he was the son of a Welsh Warlord. What brought him to Arlsyn is a puzzlement in itself, no one is certain what aligned to open the Gate that allowed him to cross time, space and planes to do so. However he did cross and eventually married Anemone and had one son, Ravin Llewellyn. Along the way something turned inside Blagden, and whether it was jealousy that his son and wife would outlive him or the denied access of power no one knows for sure but the Human soon became corrupted and struck a bargain with the Goddess of Destruction that gave him an unnaturally long life span and eventually became known as the Dead King.

A fight between father and son resulted in a split in the family Blagden became bitterly hateful towards anyone he once loved. After a witch told him his granddaughter would bring about his death he arranged to have his son and family killed. However he only succeeded in killing his son, the elf he had married and the Elven woman’s mother. The ‘taint’ (what he used to refer to his grandchildren) however escaped the slaughter. However, the children disappeared and soon after Blagden was thrown out of power.

For many years he chased after his granddaughter and even caught her for a time before striking a deal to release her, however he never planned on letting her be loose for very long and instantly began hunting her down. Eventually Blagden caught her again but it resulted in the fulfillment of a prophesy that she would be his undoing and he was killed by the elf who was actually thought to be Shadow’s father, Galain Alcarin.

Hundreds of years passed before he was brought back to life, this time with a different body and was given another chance to take over Arlsyn and gain the power he wanted.
