History

After the death of the First Magister Lysandro Rogare, his son and heir, Lysaro Rogare, aspired to rule Lys. He was elected gonfaloniere and planned on saking Tyrosh or Myr to increase his wealth and influence over the city, and wished to be elected First Magister afterwards. However, the bankruptcy of the Rogare Bank put an end to Lysaro's ambitions and brought the downfall of his family during the Lysene Spring. The Magister Torreo Haen was elected as First Magister instead but he was murdered along his family and supporters shortly after his election.[1]

The gonfaloniere Moreo Dagareon was slain by his own elite guards during the Lysene Spring.[1]
