A harsh, tough man whom is not very much liked by the population. His strict rule in his Father's sickness has earned him the title "Stoneruler".
Lyon has grown quite bitter from his short experience as a Ruler. He has learned how he needs to rule his people in order to make so that they survive... Even if it a rule that makes them hate him. His fierce reign is known in neighboring countries, even.
Lyon's Father left his country when it was on the brink of going to war with another kingdom, Boldovarl, before his sickness struck him. As noone was willing to take up the crown, Lyon was forced to, as his mother had already passed. He spent a long time preparing his Kingdom for war. Raising taxes, instituting child labor, and many other things that many people concider to be terrible. He did it all, trying to prepare his Kingdom. But all was for naught after five years of ridcule and fear, the other country sent a negotator to bargin at whatever price it would take not to go to war with Redcorde. All the stress of the people's hate, and of building an army to protect a Kingdom that didn't even like him...it was harsh. He could not give the people back their monies; he had already spent it on their military. He sent these military soldiers out as guards to his Kingdom, but they were viewed as oppressors rather than protectors. Yes, Lyon's levvies and rule went down in strictness, but his people still disliked him.
