King Azoun Obarskyr IV of Cormyr was the king of Cormyr from 1336 DR to 1371 DR and a member of the Purple Dragon Knights.[4] During his reign, the kingdom experienced unprecedented economic growth. He was killed in the Goblin War by Nalavarauthatoryl.[5]

DescriptionEdit

Azoun had a graying mustache[6] and gray streaks in his hair but was otherwise physically fit and muscular.[7]

PersonalityEdit

Azoun is content to be in battle, and despite the risks to himself, will not allow himself to be excluded from any combat that might arise in his presence.[8] There are many rumors and tales of Azoun's encounters with the opposite sex, mostly from before his marriage, and there are a number of children as a result of these relations, but the matter is not discussed openly or officially.[9] When making public addresses, Azoun preferred the term "Cormyte" over the more usual "Cormyrean" or "Cormyrian".[10]

PossessionsEdit

Azoun's sword is contained in a very tatty scabbard. He has a brown scarf given to him by Filfaeril as a token of luck.[7] In his right boot he carries a magical wand that, when snapped, opens a portal to the royal palace, through which guards and priests are ready to step in the event that Azoun requires aid.[11] Azoun also has a hollow metal sphere that, upon spoken command, can transform into a key to unlock a secret vault in the depths of the royal palace. It is one of only five, the others possessed by Vangerdahast, the queen and princesses.[12]

RelationshipsEdit

Azoun's wife was Queen Filfaeril Obarskyr.[13] He had two daughters: Tanalasta Obarskyr, the advisor, and Alusair Obarskyr, the adventuress.[13] Thomdor and Bhereu were his cousins.[14] His father was Rhigaerd II.[15] He had an heir in his grandson, Azoun V.[16] He also had a son, Foril, who was assassinated by the Fire Knives before his third year[17] in 1334 DR[18].

HistoryEdit

Azoun fought against the Tuigan horde at Thesk.[19]

In 1352 DR, the Usurper King Gondegal attempted to establish a kingdom centered in the city of Arabel. Azoun led the army of Purple Dragons to reclaim the city. In all, Gondegal had power over Arabel for just eight days.[20][21]

In 1369 DR Azoun was on a hunt with Baron Thomdor, Duke Bhereu and Aunadar Bleth when he was poisoned by a magical abraxus in the abraxus affair, putting him in a coma-like state.[22]

Died during the Goblins War, in the year 1371 by the Dragon Nalavarauthatoryl that also died in battle.[citation needed]
