Early Life

Career

In the urgency of war, Soratami rose quickly to the position of Pendragon, and took full advantage of the position's potential dictatorial powers. Virtually all military authority, and resources, came under his personal command, and soon obeyed him without question. With his own authority secure, Soratami bargained with the Green Temple, to preserve them a grand temple, with associated lands, and a place in Arindell's society, in exchange for their help in laying and binding the Grey Temple's armies of restless dead, and the means to destroy the Grey Temple itself. With this bargain struck, the Wars were brought to an end by Soratami's campaign. He himself killed Honoreck, and lived to preside over Arindell and the Slayer Dragons for some years afterward.

Controversy

It is sometimes questioned, whether Soratami kept his word to the Green Temple, inasmuch as the temple and lands given them proved too small for their population, and he refused to grant any more, or to allow them into their ancestral territories around the Feast of Aeons. Like all autocrats, he was capricious, and notorious for cruelty to any who displeased him, even those innocent of any crime or misbehavior. Nevertheless, he is commemorated as a hero, for his victory over the Grey Temple and subsequent benevolent rule.
