At the time of taking the leadership of the country Tantalon was a wise but aged man whose loyalty and strategy won the War of the Four Kingdoms. He took control of Gallantaria after Constain’s death, but died soon after the war. Realising he could not rid his kingdom of Evil alone, he issued a set of tasks to all the adventurers in the land. One completed all of the sorcerer’s tasks and was crowned King as his prize.
- Tantalon was originally going to be named Tantalus, until the authors found that it was already a name from Greek mythology.
