The Legendary 12
Councilor Bourbon is famed for being the first man to sit on an official Council. He was the very first High Council Member of Citadel and very capable, working to integrate the ideas of his citizens and help to manage taxes. Bourbon was originally a member of the King’s Advisors. He was a huge proponent of the new system that began during the Age of Emeralds, and is often hailed as the Father of the Councils. He never truly accepted the system of Advisors, and firmly believed that the King and Queen held to much power in governing the people. He and several others on the Council worked to rally support, including members of the military, preeminent wizards and sorcerer’s, wise-men, and influential heroes. The King at the time was very open-minded and easily accepted Bourbon’s ideas.
Bourbon took his job as High Council member after the Advisors were disbanded and helped to usher in the new era of legality, helping to select and elect new members for the now needed positions all around Othyr. Since then, The King has been held in check by the possibility of impeachment, and each town has better managed to serve its own needs.
