History of Persona:
Corowal was the only child of Corovan and Walrea. Corovan was Lord Darielís youngest son and Ziadrielís brother. He married a woman his father didnít approve. She was too low born. Walrea didnít feel very welcome in Emerald Falls, she was generally shunned and forgotten. When Plague killed Corovan, she took her two turns old son and moved to her native hold, Coral Bay. Corowal had very little contact with his kin in Emerald Falls after that.
Corowalís childhood in Coral Bay was rather normal one. His mother re-married and he got a bunch of half-siblings. His best friend was Zandan, a guardís son. Together they were a mischievous pair of ruffians and always in trouble for their pranks.
Corowal became assistant steward almost by accident, when the Coralís Bayís steward noticed him.
His career progressed slowly but surely. He was already 36 when he finally married. Ofelia was Coral Bayís Lord Holderís grand-niece, already 25 and considered spinster. She was unmarried because she is badly nearsighted and wears eye-glasses and is plain looking. But in Ofelia, Corowal found a partner he had been looking for, woman who could have meaningful conversations with and who beat him in the chess game. It didnít take long after their wedding when Ofelia told she was pregnant. She gave birth to Corofel. Two turns later Ofewal was born. He was born five sevendays too early and suffers from lung-problems caused by the premature birth. After Ofewal Ofelia had a miscarriage before Corolia, their daughter was born. She was later followed by another son.
Walrea started to urge Corowal to seek the position as a steward of Emerald Falls Hold, after she learned the job was vacant. Corowal was more than little surprised when his cousin he didnít even know, accepted him to the position. So, he set out to Emerald Falls, his wife, again pregnant and children joining him later.
Ofelia died during the birth of their daughter Wallia on month 13, day 24 of Turn 3.
Corowal became Lord of the Emerald Falls and later married Lady Felyna.
Felyna died in month 13, day 2 of Turn 8, during delivery of twins: Walyn was stillborn while Collyn lived.
