Character Sheet

Azoun V Obarskyr is the 72nd king of Cormyr, having inherited the throne after the death of his grandfather, the legendary Azoun IV. When he came of age in 1384 DR, he surprised everyone by immediately stepping into the role of a political animal, a stark contrast to the warrior-king who was his grandfather. He immediately went about trying to change things to be more fair towards the commoners of his kingdom but faced insurmountable adversity from the nobles of the realm. The following year, Azoun had to deal with the effects of the Spellplague and the death or disappearance of a third of his elite War Wizards, and his populist policies were largely abandoned.

History

Azoun is the son of former Crown Princess Tanalasta Obarskyr and Rowen Cormaeril, a scout in the army of Cormyr. Rowen and Tanalasta became lovers during the Goblin War and married before Chauntea's sight. Tanalasta died following childbirth, and Rowen disappeared towards the end of the Goblin War. While Azoun was just an infant his aunt and grandmother, the Regent Alusair Obarskyr and Dowager Queen Filfaeril Obarskyr, were ruling Cormyr in his stead. The utmost care was given to keep Azoun's whereabouts a secret, as there were many ambitious malcontents who would wish to do him harm, until he came to power in 1384 DR, at the age of 13.
