The Verden Realms
The overall General of Taur'on's military, the Queen's Uncle (and confirmed bachelor) is dedication personified.
Duke Matthew von Taur’on is a stern man who takes greatly after his mother, the late Queen Emma. Her only son, he dedicated his life to military service. When he failed to draw a Service Card, he instead went out and purchased one. It is rumored the farming family he bought it from has never needed to work again. He is a true military man, stoic in nature and rarely deals with any political intrigue. He has none of the desire for adventure that often grips his family, only leaving the kingdom when ordered. At fifty-seven, he shows no sign of resigning his commission any day soon.
