Adina. Princess Adina wore the belt only five times in her reign, her son King Brandon wore it only three times, then it became custom for the belt only to be worn on the day the heir took the throne.
|Ballum was burned badly while performing a magic trick at the King's birthday feast. He was permanently scarred, which is why he wore the mask. What was the original idea of the magic trick, before chief advisor Agra rigged it to release a tongue of fire?|
To release 1000 stars into the sky from a small box. The people who saw Agra's eyes fixed hungrily on the box just before Ballum opened it kept it to themselves, for Agra was the King's trusted chief advisor. Agra was the first chief advisor to be one of the Shadow Lord, which is why she told Elstred to remove the belt.
