Tohmys Symmyns was the Grand Duke of Zebediah, the first-ranking noble of Zebediah Island, when it was part of the League of Corisande and in the first years of the Charisian Empire.

Appearance Edit

Symmyns[1] was a dark (thin) haired man of average height and build, a prominent nose, narrow, guarded[2] eyes, and large, even white teeth.

Biography Edit

His father had been a "mere" baron, but was elevated to the newly created title of grand duke after Princedom of Zebediah's fall to the forces of Hektor of Corisande. Tohmys inherited the tenable position (retained only by Hektor's confidence) in turn.

In February of the Year of God 893, he surrendered the island to the Charisian Empire without a single shot just prior to the Invasion of Corisande. (BHD)

However, it would be less then a year until he started plotting with members of the Corisandian nobility to violently overthrow the Empire's rule in Corisande. The plot was foileö by Imperial authorities with a little help from Merlin Athrawes. (AMF)

Following the discovery of his role in the conspiracy, Duke Tohmys was put under arrest in his palace to await trial for high treason. Once Empress Sharleyan arrived in March of the Year of God 895, the court convicted Symmyns, stripping him of all his ranks and titles and sentencing him to death. He was given access to a confessor, and later on the same day was beheaded and buried in unconsecrated grounds. (HFAF)
