Twilight of an Age
Blayne is the bastard son of the Emperor. He’s currently on a quest to get his father to officially recognize him. In order to do this, he’s decided to embark on adventures of such impressiveness that his father would be foolish to leave him unacknowledged. He probably hasn’t even thought about what being recognized as the Emperor’s only official son would mean for him.
Like all members of the Imperial bloodline, he sports a minor bit of idiosyncratic magic which connects him to the Empire or to its people. His state of mind, or more properly his state of inebriation, is spread to those nearby him.
