When the Draconic Empire invaded the westlands, they thought their conquest would be easy and swift.  They did not anticipate the presence and actions of heroes like Alexander Iltorwen III.
Alexander is the son of a half-elf family from Alindor, in the Southern Palatines. In his youth, he left Alindor to become an adventurer and see the world. He had many adventures and traveled all over Lore and even beyond it, to other planes of existence. However, there came a time when a comfy chair by the fire seemed more attractive than thwarting evil and saving the princess. After a long and successful career, Alexander retired from adventuring. He bought a vineyard in Alindor and enjoyed the life of a country squire. Occasionally, old friends would stop by and they would reminisce about ‘the good old days.’ Once or twice, Alex was asked to deal with a problem beyond the scope of the locals. When the green dragon, Elmordrel, fled south from Shrike and started raiding the countryside, Alexander put on his old fighting gear, marched into the woods and slew her. The locals are still grateful and have even commemorated Alexander’s victory with an annual celebration.
When the Draconic Empire marched on the west, the Southern Palatines prepared for war. Alexander was drafted to command the armies of Alindor. When the Draconic Legions turned south, they met fierce resistance from the local nation-states. Eventually, Alexander was placed in charge of the combined armies of the Southern Palatines as Grand General.
When Alexander learned that imperial wizards were preparing a ritual to summon the legendary tarasque, he personally led a small party that slipped past the imperial lines and disrupted the ritual. The wizards did manage to summon the tarasque, but they could not control the beast and it ravaged their forces before turning east and marching toward the empire.
Since then, Alexander’s reputation has only grown. There are rumors that the gentry and the common folk would submit to Alexander being crowned King of the South, a title that has not existed for almost a thousand years.
Alexander, however, has no interest in being a king. He wants to secure the South, then return to his vineyards and his humble life as a country squire. Whether fate would allow this to happen, however, is another question entirely.
