Vaeryn, born as Devan, was the second son born to King Vaeryn III and Queen Maria. When his older brother Auguste went missing during an expedition to the Sanguine Wastes, he was moved to be next in line for the throne. When his father died 5 years later, he ascended to the throne at the age of 15, taking the name Vaeyrn. Upon ascending to the throne, he appointed his mother to be his advisor, as he did not know the intricacies of ruling a kingdom yet. Although many citizens doubted that one so young would be able to rule effectively, most doubts were quelled after he successfully negotiated a peace treaty with Calatis, ending the possibility of a hobgoblin attack.
Now 26 years old, King Vaeyrn IV is known for being more open-minded than his father was, as well as being fair and generous. Though he is not without his detractors, he is a very popular ruler. He is especially popular among the young women of Katur, many who seek to marry him, though he has not chosen a wife yet. He maintains a good relationship with his mother, who remains his advisor, as well as his younger brother Gerald, who is the general of Katur’s armies. His sister, Mara, is not on the best of terms with him, due to him believing that she is too young to hold any royal responsibilities.
