Konig Stahldritten was the thirdborn of the ninth House Stahldritten, and the son of Kernig Stahldritten. He had three brothers (Klemm, Ruhig and Kuhl) and one younger sister (Kalte). He married Fieke Erdefunfte and had eight children (Konnen, Korol, Heike, Klauen, Bitva, Latya, Helm and Krov). He ruled as Great Mage of the Stahl Realm until his death in 401.

Appearance & Character Edit


History Edit

Konig was surrounded by death for most of his young adult life. His youngest brother Kuhl died of accidental causes at only 21 years of age, and his eldest brother Klemm died whilst on a hunting expedition with Konig only a few years before.

Initially, many suspected foul play surrounding Klemm's death, particularly as in the wake of their father's death, Klemm was the obvious choice to succeed him as Great Mage. Following his eldest brother's death, Ruhig was quick to disinherit the throne for his younger brother Konig to claim. He and his sister Kalte continued to serve Konig for many years as Legion Commanders of the Stahl Army until their deaths.

Family Life Edit


Shattered Warsword Edit

Konig was one of only a handful of Great Mages to shatter his warsword - a symbolic message from the Stahl Father that the wielder should disengage from further violence. As such, Konig was forbidden by the laws of the Stahl Realm to take up his sword, and this significantly limited his ability to respond in war times.

Retirement & Death Edit

Luckily, the Stahl Realm entered an era of peace following Konig's rigorous penalisation of larceny and murder in the Realm. In the autumn of 401, Konig agreed to retire from his role as Great Mage, to the surprise of his subjects - many suspected that the retirement would be brief. It was later revealed that whilst retiring in the mountainous range that forms the borders the Stahl Realm, Fieke took a dagger to his throat, and then to her own. His daughter Heike was the only one to know of his death, as she had planned with her mother to remove him from his position of authority, on the understanding that he would be unable to adequately combat the Devonian threat with a shattered warsword.
