Duke Gorlois

Duke of Cornwall


Duke Gorlois is an aged and grizzled veteran, born in 429. He was the first from Cornwall to support Aurelius Ambrosius, and was one of the High King’s fiercest supporters. He was honoured with a Dukedom, and has since guarded it against regular Irish raids.

He is noted for his tremendous loyalty to his wife and personal courage. He is aging and many believe that he will soon depart from the battlefield.
