Emperor Chrondrius Vahla, the second son of Pulioso, the former fallen Emperor of Astria, who was the hero of the great battle of "Broken Storms" at the vital Ossos river crossing against the Nephiric Horde. Husband of Cyra, father of Rihia, Nehzra, and Aia. Chrondrius's ascent to emperorship came from the abdication of his elder brother Nidus following the battle of Helia in the War of the Father. Where Chrondrius and his brother Nidus dethroned, their father avenging the murder of their mother. Restoring peace and order to the realm of Astria, the faltering empire was saved calamity and given a glimmer of hope as the two worked tirelessly to rebuild their faltering empire.
Chrondrius is charged with the task of restoring order to the empire, which since the war of the five emperors centuries ago, has been on a steady decline. The Astrian Empire is beset to the west by the horse warriors of the Nephiric horde from the Ogorial Steppes, having conquered most of the empire's mainland territories. All that is keeping the hordes at bay is the high mountain ranges that shelter house Lanium and house Taurius. The Southern Astrian provinces are guarded only by a single great river known as the Ossos river. Across the northern Marium sea, the united Konungr of Kardovia rise from the ashes of the once formidable Olnir Empire. Giant Warriors that rise above even the northern Astrian men raiding villages along the coast as they press their claims on imperial held isles in the Sea of Woes. Across the sea of Ioniia on the isle of Hellastro, the Ashen Conclave of Novaria stirs, the successor state to one of the most ancient enemies of Astria the Crimson Dominion. Much of the imperial territories south of the Sea of Appolia on the continent of Korinos fell to the Southern barbarian invasions of Mehadisch. At the same time, secession has seen the loss of Galae, Ethos, Tori, Rosealyon, Vernia, and Velatubre.
Through Fire, Faith, and Duty! The Empire continues to shine its torch, and it shall not go quietly into the void.
