My duty to Cormyr demands that I help avert a crisis that could threaten any part of the continent.
  — King Azoun of Cormyr[4]

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.[5] During his reign, the kingdom experienced unprecedented economic growth. He was killed in the Goblin War by Nalavarauthatoryl.[6]

DescriptionEdit

Azoun had a graying mustache[7] and gray streaks in his hair but was otherwise physically fit and muscular.[8]

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.[9] 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.[10] When making public addresses, Azoun preferred the term "Cormyte" over the more usual "Cormyrean" or "Cormyrian".[11]

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.[8] 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.[12] 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.[13]

RelationshipsEdit

Azoun's wife was Queen Filfaeril Obarskyr.[14] He had two daughters: Tanalasta Obarskyr, the advisor, and Alusair Obarskyr, the adventuress.[14] Thomdor and Bhereu were his cousins.[15] His father was Rhigaerd II.[16] He had an heir in his grandson, Azoun V.[17] He also had a son, Foril, who was assassinated by the Fire Knives before his third year[18] in 1334 DR[19].

HistoryEdit

Azoun fought against the Tuigan horde at Thesk.[20]

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.[21][22]

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.[23]

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