The Opulant, Usurping Duke of Barfield
An incredibly fat, slovenly man whose brother, Duke Cedric, rightfully rules over. Horace gradually pushed Cedric out of the Southern half of Barfield, eventually declaring his own duchy. After a civil war during the Anima Revolution, North and South Barfield were reunited under Cedric’s banner and Horace was thrown in prison. This was a major turning point in the war against Emperor Rallis.
A few months later, however, Cedric has disappeared, and Horace is now parading as Duke of both North and South Barfield.
