King Torric II
Torric Markant, the current King of Mantoni. King Torric II traces his ancestry directly to the ancient royal line of Danton, which is of particular relevance given the oft-stated Mantonian ambition of someday rebuilding the Dantonian Empire.
The King was the first to be affected by the Dark Curse cast on the Royal Family by the Nelonian Shadow Council and was more seriously affected than anyone else. For almost two years he lay at the very brink of death - only kept alive by the constant attention of powerful mages.
When the King was first struck down his son Prince Halaric took on the role of regent, though he and his brothers eventually succumbed as well - and Jerall Markant, at the time pretending to be Prince Anthony, served as Regent from then until the lifting of the curse.
