Claws of the Dragon
King Neden I
King of Throal
During the long illness of King Varulus III of the Kingdom of Throal, his son Prince Neden was gradually given more and more authority, leaving him ready for taking the throne upon his father’s seemingly inevitable death. The fact that his father died of foul play, not his illness, shook Neden to his core.
Neden blamed the action on Theran agents and readies his armies for war, despite the concerns of his advisers.
He is widely regarded as competent but untested; many dwarfs are concerned that his desires to prove his ability despite his age and his hatred of the Therans will ultimately overwhelm his wisdom.
