Guardian of the Shadow Forest

From the Realm of Kaizen database

Guardian of the Shadow Forest is a title held by the King of Callahagan and House Callahagan. The title is of symbolic nature, representing the overlordship of the general region of the Shadow Forest and the lords that inhabit it. The title links the Gowyr dynasty with the Callahagan dynasty. The current Guardian of the Shadow Forest is King Eadward Callahagan.

List of Guardians of the Shadow Forest

House Callahagan

At the conclusion of the Stoneking Conquest—which resulted in the destruction of House Gowyr—the lords of the Shadow Forest met at Greenwood to decide who would become their new king, and the Guardian of the Shadow Forest. The main claiments were Lord Jeryd Howler, who served as Marshal and de-facto Guardian of the Shadow Forest near the conclusion of the war; Lord Cyneric Cynrigh, the leader of the formerly royal House Cynrigh; Nestor Greenblood, a distant relative of House Gowyr; and Lord Brian Callahagan, who had broken the main invasion force and helped bring an end to the war.

The meeting was presided over by Lord Leo Wyrin, and would four months. Every other day the lords would meet in the great hall and cast their votes, with a requirement of two-thirds of the vote necessary to win. Nestor Greenblood was the first to withdraw from the vote after only a fortnight. A month later Lord Cynrigh would drop from the lists, leaving only the lords Jeryd Howler and Brian Callahagan to compete for the title.

As the weeks passed, neither managed to gain the majority of the votes. After three months of voting had passed, Lord Jeryd Howler became enraged and began to taunt his opponent. This would prove to be his undoing, and over the week Lord Brian Callahagan would gain more votes until finally winning.
