!! Bishop Vanya

The corrupt leader of the church. He is one of the most politically powerful men in Thimhallan and goes to great lengths to secure that power.

* AdiposeRex: He is constantly referred to as obese, especially by Simkin. And while he is no royalty in name, he does hold the same degree of political power.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Comes over as a kind and fatherly man, but all of this is a ruse to manipulate people in doing what he wants. He especially likes to make people think they owe him something due to past sins.
* CorruptChurch: A personification of this trope.
* WouldHurtAChild: Due to the prophecy, he is scared to death of Joram, even when Joram was still an infant. While he might not be planning to kill him in fear of furthering the prophecy, it is implied that the alternative would not be nice either.

!! Xavier

Joram's uncle and the second in line to the throne. He would be the first in line if it weren't for the fact Joram is still alive. He is preying in said throne for a very long time.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Pretends to treat Joram with respect, while also rubbing in how he is going to screw him over to gain the throne.
