framed|Ivan Polavich

Typical Dialogue:


Ivan Polavich is the ruling Tsor of the realm Melyy.
He was born in Velenoye's province Taldy in the old, respectable Soviyenski clan and grew up as a warrior. He fought in the wars against the Sword Rust Tribes with his fellow clansmen, and his strength, toughness and leadership earned him a place among the Boyar's varsk riders. It was in one of these fights that Ivan lost his left foot in one of the bloodiest battles against Orogs.
Ivan had become such a respected leader that Velenoye's former Tsar rewarded him with rulership of the tiny, unimportant realm of Melyy rather then following the usual Vos practice of slaying or abandoning the crippled warriors.
Still a young and strong man, Ivan knew that he could no longer stand with his warriors in the shield wall, and worked hard on perfecting his cavalry and command skills.
His last name Polavich ("half-man") indicates his handicap, but Ivan has never let that affect him and now even his warriors speaks it with pride.
Recently, Melyy and Velenoye broke off their official vassal-overlord relationship, with some hard feelings. Tsor Ivan is learning to rule his small land ond his own, while dealing with the disruptions caused by the silver-mining fever that has attracted greedy individuals from across the Vos coast.
