Demara was one of several powerful warlords who styled themselves ‘king’ after managing to bring a sizable territory under their control. Not much is known about him, his mysterious ending may be the only reason history remembers him at all.
Demara was ruler of a city known as Halavos, but by the second half of the sixth century AC he had unified sufficient towns to call himself ‘king’ and build a fine palace (probably somewhere in the Dymrak region). The few tales and songs from his time suggest that he was a wise ruler and that he never forgot anything. He was rumoured by some to possess one of the Eyes of Traldar. His wife, Elendorath was thought by some to be from a foreign land (possibly Darokin), whatever the reason she eventually betrayed him and led an army of men and demons against him.
No one now knows what happened, but Elendorath returned to Vaion and was known to be a cruel ruler for several years afterwards. No word of Demara or his palace ever came out of Dymrak.
Following the disappearance of Demara and the eventual overthrowal of Elendorath, Demara’s realm was claimed (unsucessfully) by the king of Darokin on behalf of his grandson Mithras Demaravich, who was claimed to be Demara and Elendorath’s son. This led to the formation of the traladaran League by the lords of Lumm, Volaga and Korisegy.
