“Anduin, I now believe as you do, that peace is the noblest aspiration. But to preserve it, you must be willing to fight!”
Varian Wrynn, World of Warcraft
One of the main personality traits for the main character in my six-part fantasy series is his desire to establish peace across the empire. He is one of those royals who has only known peace and prosperity and he wants to make it last as long as possible. However, something unexpected happens that forces him to reluctantly go to war. Throughout the story, he starts as a reluctant commander who does not want to fight to being hellbent to ending the war as quickly as possible. This blind pursuit of peace will have unintended consequences throughout the war effort.
