Roleplaying The Sword of the Green King
The Sword of the Green King is kept in the late king's air ship. The air ship itself is stored deep within the secret Eladrin "embasy" in the Elemental Chaos. Those generals that know of it's existence have all tried to retrieve it in order to return it to the Fey wild. Every attempt has met with failure. When it is lifted to this purpose it becomes very cold and feels as though it weighs several hundred pounds. Frostbite wounds result as well as wounded pride.

He is on a constant mission to save someone to whom he had been unable to, and now embodies those ideals on less of a personal level.

Not having been one to back down in life, part of the reason for his demise, he attempts to shine that into anyone who wields him, encouraging them to never flee from a fight, regardless of the odds against them.
