Background Information:

*History:
Born third son to a minor lordling, Azalyr was trained in both magic and weaponry to take his place as another one of his father's guards. Owing to his prowess with a sword as he grew up, he became well known through tourneys and various other events, gathering the attention of the reigning family of Draenthaw. Given the chance of a lifetime he was approached by the weaponsmaster for the Kennyr'Tlithar household and asked to become part of the guard. Accepting almost immediately Azalyr found his life suddenly very different than what it had been, he trained day and night to meet the strict discipline that Illarndul Kennyr'Tlithar demanded from his bodyguards.

At the age of 900 he was given the task as personal bodyguard to the King's Consort Kornis, although she was a well known sorceress, Illarndul did not want anything to happen to her. For over a hundred years he cared for the King's Consort with more care than any other guard previous. Because of this he was her most trusted bodyguard and the only one allowed to accompany her on the regular trips she made to the temple to visit her daughter Amalthea. During one visit in particular Kornis was heavily pregnant with her second child, one everyone hoped would be the heir and crown prince. It was on the way home that they were attacked, Azalyr receiving the wound across his torso, although he managed to fight off the bandits. Even so, Kornis went into premature labour, Azalyr the only one nearby. With what help he could offer, Kornis gave birth to her second child, a boy who would be named Rhys Kennyr'Tlithar, heir apparent to the Kennyr'Tlithar throne.

Azalyr watched Rhys grow, taking on the boy's training when it became appropriate. Over the years he became aware that the hero worship Rhys had once looked to him with had changed to something else. Azalyr did nothing to encourage the boy, but continued training him. Eventually the age difference ceased to matter, and one Rhys' one thousandth birthday he was named crowned prince. At that time he named Azalyr his personal body guard. It wasn't until Rhys' two thousandth year that Azalyr finally admitted his own feelings.

It was the sudden death of Ilarndul after a hunting accident that rocked Draenthaw to the core. Three days after his death was reported, Kornis followed him. Rhys took the throne of Draenthaw, two tousand years ahead of schedule, Azalyr accepting not only the soul bond but the consort bond as well.
