The Aeternus, born Daniel Dale, was an Aivintian royal and dictator in the early 19th century. Born to a peasant by King Geoffrey Dale, Daniel took advantage of the turmoil following his father’s death to raise an army and declare himself “The Aeternus”, a God-King in the eyes of his people. Daniel established Aeternism as the national religion, and his reign was marked by fierce religious persecution and the institution of the Aeternist Inquisiton, a body of soldiers and priests dedicated to wiping out all remnants of the old nobility and all religious heretics. The Aeternus is well known as a brutal dictator, and left a terrible impact on the people and nation of Aivintis.
