The king of Oblivia. Amellus is generally considered to be a weak and vacillating man, who is more interested in his own comfort than the care for his country. His one defining trait that puts him above some predecessors is his choice of subordinates. He has a keen eye for appointing great individuals for roles that allow his own laziness to continue. He has gained great favor from the Pendragon and Ravencrest families by acknowledging the great women produced by the houses to take roles that Wolfhelm men were sure would be theirs.
