Unlike many of the hereditary monarchs that rule other lands, Watcher-Lord Ulthun II was chosen for his qualities. He was considered the absolute exemplar of all the crusader virtues Lastwall values most highly. Only 22 years of age, Ulthun is the grandson of refugees who fled the shadowy tyranny of Nidal. While his age may seem a disadvantage, his lack of experience is counter-balanced by advisers from groups like the Precentors Martial. Ulthun’s good qualities are numerous: he is pure of heart, faithful to his god, and skilled at arms. He has also displayed a talent for leadership with a quick mind, sound judgement, and a willingness to listen to others. All these qualities combined with rulership of an entire country has made Ulthun one of the most eligible bachelors in all Avistan.
Ulthun is aware of Veena’s interest in him, but so far has held back from her attentions. Partially because he is still trying to get a handle on the war in Lastwall. Partially because he is well aware that anyone that he takes an interest in will instantly become a target by Lastwall’s enemies. He has already watched others lose loved ones exactly this way, and Lord Mortekei’s wife Lady Kaeko was nearly assassinated at Ulthun’s coronation party when he ascended to his position as Watcher-Lord. The other reason he has held back from Veena’s interest in him, and from really allowing himself to admit the attraction is mutual is his father has encouraged him to marry someone from a noble household within the regions of Ustalav or Nirmathas to strengthen their political ties to their neighbors to the north and south.
In truth however, Ulthun is deeply in love with the Lady Elandra and struggles finding a way to finally come to terms with the truth of it.
