|Citizen of Mercinae||Knights Guild||No Order|
"Lazy Dunccan, the Sad Old Clown" with birth certification: 20-5-1998.
Dunccan hails from the city of Mercinae.
Dunccan is a member of the Knights Guild with Grand-Master rank.
Known for a raging temper and an eccentric personality, Dunccan is the high priest of Castigere and a strong fighter for good. He was a Mercinaen knight for most of his life, but after a clash with Edgtho he left for Springdale where he spent some time as a paladin. A long absence followed, as a result of a craven capitulation during an ordination, but after returning from his self-imposed exile and joining the Parrian Warriors, Dunccan quickly took over guildmastery. His old-school fighting prowess sees him one of the most formidable of opponents and he lead - in his time on the frontline - the Parrian armies, defending the city with a quick blade and legions of well-marshalled troops. His time as Parrian Field Marshall ended rather acrimoniously, however, as the city turns its back on the returning 'hero' after conquest of Mercinae.
Dunccan went through a low epoch after his unexpected and ignominious treatment by Parrius after what he and many had viewed as a great military triumph over Mercinae. Modern times has seen a renaissance of this old school and undoubtedly talented fighter and he has risen to triumph in a popular vote against the incumbent in a resounding election victory for the Mercinaen baronial council - against all expectations - while his combat is widely recognised as having the potential to be the best of the post-Elmaethor era. He took the reigns as Prince of Mercinae by right in 1368 aDW and with him has been charged the restoration of the City of Light and Justice and defender of the faithful. He holds the rare honour of the Knight Paradigm.
