"Men often speak of justice as the middle way, the compromise, but that is the guise of lesser evils. Justice is to uphold that which is right, and there is no place for compromise in this."
―King Jehan the Wise of Callow[1]

Jehan the Wise was a king of Callow and is widely considered as one of the country's more popular monarchs. He marched on the Principate of Procer to hang seven princes and one, which means he reigned as part of the Fairfax

Dynasty.[2][3]

General Information Edit

Jehan Fairfax was Named the Good King. Though it’s never specified his reign must have been been long as he survived six wars.[4] At least one of which was against the Principate and we can deduce from his epigraph that a couple must have been against the Dread Empire. He was a popular monarch: there is at least one song written about him and Cordelia Hasenbach mentions his memoirs which were used in reforming some of Procer’s government.[5]

He’s had at least one son, named Pater, who inherited his throne but did not heed his advice.
