Into the Vohven
Assassination of the King
Roughly 20 years ago, King Whereazni was assasssinated in his bedchamber by the Lady in Black. At the time he was being guarded by Arturr Gorvassi. Arturr let the lady in to the King’s bedchamber, where she smothered him with his pillow. There is some question as to whether or not Arturr was under the influence of magic when this happened. It was unlike him to allow any danger to approach his king. Prior to this he was well known for his loyalty and devotion to the king.
After the assassination, Arturr was executed for treason. Mizhovar smuggled Arturr’s son out of the city. Mizhovar then trained the young Gorvassi in the martial arts. When young Vosted Gorvassi found out about Mizhovar’s role in his father’s death, the two of them had a falling out. Vosted tried to kill his former mentor in a duel. Mizhovar fought him with his fists and beat the younger man with a blow between the legs. Vosted has never forgiven his former mentor and holds a grudge to this day.
Mizhovar regrets testifying against his former friend and has drunk himself into a stupor every night since as a result. He is now trying different concoctions from the jungle to try to dull his pain. He is still the greatest swordsman in Zazahni and as such is still employed by Duke Imwahil.
