The Kingdom of Haven occupies a sizable portion of what once once The Barony of Southwatch before The Forsaken destroyed the infrastructure of Southwatch and put a large number of their people to the sword.
As the surprising first strike that started The War of Kings, Haven was attacked by the barbaric warriors of of, who put many small villages to the torch, and laid claim to the former navy of Southwatch. Hadrianus has continued to occupy all of Haven's seaside port cities. A section of North-Eastern Haven has been granted to the Kingdom of , reducing Haven into one of the smallest kingdoms in Terath.
Haven is now ruled by King Vol, the Xelaque wizard. The vast majority of citizens in haven are Xelaque, having migrated from across much of Terath, magically traveled from , and ventured upward to the surface from the deep cavern of the Under Realm beneath Terath. In the far northern reaches of Haven, one can find the ruins of the now-destroyed Forsaken Tower.
It is widely known that the Kingdom of Haven was once a Vassal Kingdom of Falconcrest, and thus under the protection of King Aleric Falconcrest and his armies. However, in the recent past the treaties between the two kingdoms were rewritten, acknowledging them as equal allies. Both kingdoms remain fiercely linked and participate in the trading of military officers, the fostering noble children, and the cooperative training of their military forces.
King Vol: The King of Haven is, perhaps, the most cunning political figure in all of Terathian politics. This may be out of necessity, however, as his kingdom possesses very little direct military strength. King Vol is considered by most to be a self-made monarch, having risen to power from low birth by his own wit, guile, and silver tongue. Whispers of a past filled with blood and ash echo within the noble courts, but the King of Haven is known to be a friendly and cordial man, with high regard for honoring proper hospitality.
Seneschal Celene: Matron of the powerful House Shin, Lady Celene is a very capable and competent leader. She serves to facilitate communication and cooperation between the numerous noble houses of Haven, and is a figure feared and respected by all.
Lord Talandar: A powerful ritual spell caster and a hero to his people; Lord Talandar was personally responsible for uniting the Xelaque Houses and leading them to the surface to establish the Kingdom of Haven. Well over half of the Xelaque which reside in the Kingdom of Haven originate from ancient homes far down within the deep caverns of The UnderRealm, and look to Lord Talandar as the greatest champion of this age.
