A wise ruler, Themarodes has led his nation through two major battles, both of which increased Thasos’ prominence in the region. Where others in his position might seek claim to the Ajani throne, he has carefully solidified power without bringing such dangerous attention to his true aims. He recently foiled a plot on his life by his adviser Magus Vettius. He is now advised by Magus Balthius, who is frequently absent. Lord Marius, the declared Ajani Heir, is sworn to him.
