The Eternal Nine are the God Kings of the Woodland Realm, who, in the old times, formed a unified state in order to protect against the Human Kingdom, the Orc Tribes, and the Naga Kingdom.
The Jaguar Prince Stone Roar came from Iza Ila, an incredibly warlike state on the southern jungle edge of the woodlands. He once held an empire that controlled the [Naga] to the south, but their rebellions proved too costly to put down. He is often signified by his unique weapons, a log of wenge covered with four inch bronze spikes attached to a massive bronze chain called “Judgement” and a feathered bronze pike called “Penance.” He was very famous for being incredibly competitive and abrasive, but remarkably giving and fair. He joined the Eternal Nine when the Naga Kingdom laid siege the gnommic city of Arev, declaring that his “problem children would not try to steal gnome trinkets as openly in Daddy’s house.”
Arev’s protector was quite fine with help from Iza Ila. Pallimonue the Tinker Queen was in no way willing to back down from an army intent on taking gnommic technology, but she knew her army was not able to hold the Naga away for very long, and a complete siege would destroy her limited resources. Her reputation is of a brilliant and clever mind, with an intuitive feeling for machinery. Her symbol is a thirteen tined cog that shines like the sun.
