The World of Aru
Vice King Theoron Ironfist
Vice King of the dwarves of Silver Hammer Hold. The title of the leader has been Vice King ever since the dwarves pledged loyalty to the Republic. The then High King was renamed Vice King to better reflect his vassalage.
Theoron Ironfist is a member of the long lasting Ironfist dynasty, that has ruled Silver Hammer Hold for ages. He is attempting to produce an heir to the throne. If the Vice King has no male children the throne will pass through seniority to his younger brother Vizier Dulrin Ironfist.
Theoron has been known as a trader king, reinventing the bureaucracy pertaining to outside trade from the Hold. He instated the Merchant Expansion Act and restricted outside access to the Hold, and by extension The Underdark. He supports peaceful coexistence with the Empire of Redd, though is unwilling to take too drastic measures that would weaken his throne.
