Emperor Cassamire Tempest
The high priest of the Church of the Golden Conquest and emperor of Rhodes.
Cassamire began his career as a general in the Rhodes army. When the kingdom’s royal family was assassinated, it was he who led the campaign against Balsamo. During his crusade, the general found his faith in a small religion that worshipped a hero-god from before Rhodes’ history. With his urging, the Church of the Golden Conquest became the patron religion of the kingdom.
His campaign against Balsamo soon became one against magic as a whole once Rhodes had conquered the western kingdom. Claiming that magic was the source of most of the world’s corruption, witch hunts funded by the Church began occurring all across Balsamo.
