Fireborn: Dark Phoenix
Lord Iosef Syri "The Grey"
An elderly member of the Prismatic Circle
Lord Syri is in his late 70s, and has served in the Circle since his accession at a mere 19. The oldest member of the original circle, he has long been amongst the most respected of the Prism Lords, and something of a kingmaker in his younger days. For the last decade, though, a series of miscalculations and odd decisions have eroded much of his popularity, and the influx of newer members of a younger generation has likewise darkened his horizon.
He has two potential heirs; his (firstborn) daughter Zatorska, and his last surviving son Feodov. Female succession has never been permitted in Korakova, though it has occasionally been mooted (to no effect); but Feodov has little aptitude for magic or politics.
