Leader of the resistance to Astora's imperial occupation
Rory is a young man who wants to see the Akandi Empire stopped and Astora returned to its independence. He has no notions of being the city’s leader, as he isn’t a mage or a member of the waning nobility. He simply wants his people to be free to innovate and research and be kept out of the squabbles of other nations. His youth brings with it a certain naivete, as he suggested that the Empire may simply leave if the object of their search were taken from them. He is hesitant to engage in actions that will cost his peoples’ lives.
