A Dark Moon Rising
Prince Vorg Dadrak I
First Prince of the Dadrak Dynasty
Vorg Dadrak was the Urukin Commander of the Ankarran City Guard at the time of Prince Roland III’s death. When it became clear that the fighting would not die down and a new Prince emerge, he decided to take matters into his own hands. He forced his own men in line- they, too had become involved in the battle over the throne, since many had taken sides with one or another contender- and used them to enforce martial law. Once open battle was stopped, Dadrak decided that the best course of action was to take power himself, and crowned himself Prince, thus founding the Dadrak Dynasty. Virtually his first act as monarch was to institute contingency laws to ensure that there would not be a repeat of the civil war he had just ended, by giving power to the Conclave to name an heir if the ruling Prince does not or cannot.
