King Laurent de Perrin
King Laurent de Perrin is the King of Perrin and Admiral of the Imperial Navy. He is also the liege lord of Duke Elliott Swartout of York and the brother of the duke’s wife, Duchess Evaine Swartout de Perrin, who is his only living sibling. As the ruler of a far-flung island nation, King Laurent has enjoyed more independence than many of the other kings who owe tribute to the empire. Now that the emperor is dead, he must decide how—and whether—Perrin fits into the new imperial order.
