BACKGROUND

The fire giant king has ruled the fire giant realm since his father’s death and has proven himself as one of the kingdom’s finest and most brutal leaders yet. None are excluded from his wrath, and since he took the throne he has killed no fewer than five of his own wives, whether for supposed adultery, insolence, or merely catching him in the wrong mood. Regardless, all fire giantesses swoon over the chance of wedding the fierce and ruthless warlord.

Though he seeks to begin a campaign that would expand his empire further across mountains, his advisors have noted their king seems especially preoccupied by his latest queen (LE fire giant barbarian 2/fighter 5), a talented warrior who traveled from distant lands to seek his hand in marriage, and who has proven to be his most formidable wife yet.
