Galaghard Obarskyr was a king of Cormyr. It is said that a particular moonstone chess set in the royal palace has a good likeness of him.[1]

He is Duar Obarskyr's only son and heir from his second wife. Duar remarried after his first wife's family betrayed the country.

Galaghard only officially ruled Cormyr from 480 DR to 514 DR but his only son died quite late into his reign. Amedahast extended Galaghard's life with longevity magics which allowed him to assume the identity of his dead heir.

As Galaghard II he had three more male children but all of them rebelled against him and he had to have them all slain. Again, with Amedahast's help, he sustained his own life yet further and took the identity of his third son whom he lied was actually still loyal to him.

As King Draxius Obarskyr he was king of Cormyr. He was known to be on the throne in 629 DR. He had a dislike of cats on account of their lack of devotion compared to dogs.[2]

PossessionsEdit

Draxius possessed the war shield Undying Gaze.[3]

BackgroundEdit

Draxius passed laws to prevent logging in the King's Forest. He also quelled a rebellion in Arabel.[4]

In 629 DR, Draxius survived an assassination attempt by a magical near-invisible beast from the ruins of Netheril. The perpetrators were Luthax and Elmariel Emmarask. The king was only marginally given enough warning by Thanderahast and managed to slay the beast himself.[5] He had been in bed with a blonde-haired woman (not the Queen) at the time, and asked Thanderahast, as the only other person to know this, to keep this to himself.[6]

During the so called reign of Draxius, Amedahast died, thus ending the longevity magics but Galaghard finally had a son to carry on his line, Bryntarth Obarskyr I. Thus ended the rule of the longest reigning monarch Cormyr has ever seen.[citation needed]
