Kenway, Duke of Aendrim is the Baron of Dalrath, one of the baronies in Vasloria, and Duke of Aendrim. He bears the Shield of Aendrim, a powerful magical artifact and symbol of his right to rule Aendrim.
Early HistoryKenway was educated at the Imperial University in Capital.
Baron of Dalrath
Prior to the events of The Chain, Kenway inherited dominion over the barony of Dalrath in the north of Vasloria. When Kenway was at university, he learned his father was on his deathbed when the Hound arrived at school, 3,000 miles from home.
The Siege of Castle Rend
Once Kenway learned of the events that transpired in Bedegar from The Shield of Gravesford, he immediately began plotting to acquire his southern neighbor. Kenway initially planned to simply have the young Edmund, Baron of Bedegar, executed, but then decided to bring him north to Dalrath for protection.
During the Siege of Castle Rend, Baron Kenway took his armies south to support Nekodemus, bringing Edmund with him. Before the battle took place; Kenway, Edmund and Lady Avelina went inside to discuss Kenway's ambitions, alongside Nekodemus and Graves. He explains that he will offer support to Edmund at the price of absolute fealty, which Edmund was uncertain of, as he is only a child. Edmund left it to Nekodemus and Graves to decide the fate of Bedegar, which they agree to Kenway's offer. Lady Avelina then murders Edmund, and Kenway installed Nekodemus as the Baron of Bedegar and had Nekodemus swear fealty.
Duke of Aendrim
Now possessing two baronies, Kenway took the Shield of Aendrim from Nekodemus. Kenway then went to Tor to get the Baron of Tor, Ceris, to swear fealty. The negotiation between the two barons is left ambiguous - whether she swore fealty or was executed is unknown - but afterward, Kenway declared himself the Duke of Aendrim. As his ambition expanded he naturally found himself in conflict with Saint Ajax.
Nekodemus, the Baron of Rend has sworn fealty to the Duke of Dalrath, and for his loyalty, he was anointed Baron of Bedegar after the death of the last rightful heir, Edmund.
The Knight of the Coals
Kenway has three knights that act as his chief lieutenants.
- Sir Holkar, the Spy
- Sir Vennen, the Diplomat
- Lady Avelina, the Commando
He also possesses The Hound of Dalrath, a hellhound and powerful magical creature.
