King Azoun IV ((LG hm F20) has 71 generations before him as ruler of Cormyr and is the son of Rhigaerd II and Tanalusta Truesilver, both of whom are dead. He was born in 1307 DR, five years after his sister, Sulesta, who is also now deceased. Azoun blends a commoners appearance with a regal demeanor. A stocky man with graying brown hair and a full beard, Azoun has a quick wit and ready smile, with a chuckle never far from his lips. Despite this appearance, Azoun is careful and practical in his rulership, and his expensive tastes could only have been cultivated on a royal income.
Azoun is rarely alone, often being found in the company of one of his close advisers and almost always in the presence of his personal bodyguard, six 8thlevel fighters.
The kings most prized possessions are his extensive collection of magical swords and the magical items that he carries, including rings and bracers that provide immunity from attack. He is also reputed to have a spell to teleport himself when in grave danger.
As a ruler, the king has been very capable especially since the Gondegal incident. There was another, brief, military episode where he organized the crusade against the Tuigan Horde in 1360 DR. The king again personally led his troops, and when blood was spilled, the king got into the fray and challenged the leader of the enemy to single combat, which the king won.
