Tales of the Bloodstone Lands
Nicknamed the Lazy by his people (though not in earshot). William sits on the ducal throne of Arcata and regularly drinks himself into a stupor.
Duke William Horgath is the last in a long line of House Horgath. Bald, with a growing paunch, William began the Bloodstone Wars with a surprise attack against Bloodstone Village.
That attack ended in abject failure for the older William. The commander of his Ducal Guard, Myrkos, returned a supporter of Gareth Dragonsbane. Most of Arcata are in support of the new king, leaving William feeling very isolated.
William sits on his Ducal throne, regularly drinking himself into a stupor. He hates Dragonsbane with a passion, but is intelligent enough to understand that he would be removed from power by his people and the Ducal Guard should he openly oppose the new king.
