Rhúgaras Blackthorn was a formidable and ambitious leader of House Blackthorn, known for his unwavering belief that his house was the rightful ruler of the Kingdom of Alsryn. His dissatisfaction with House Mirrorwind's rule led him to instigate  a series of events that led to the Second Succession Crisis in -1,552 P.S., a civil war that would engulf the kingdom for two centuries.

Rhúgaras was a master of both strategy and dark magic, using his skills to rally support and challenge the legitimacy of House Mirrorwind. Under his leadership, House Blackthorn launched numerous campaigns and plots against the ruling house, plunging the kingdom into chaos and bloodshed.

Second Succession Crisis:

The Second Succession Crisis was marked by relentless conflict, political intrigue, and widespread devastation. Rhúgaras' determination to "reclaim" the throne for his house drove him to extreme measures, including alliances with dark forces and the use of forbidden magic.

Despite his efforts, House Blackthorn was ultimately defeated in -1,332 P.S., leading to their banishment from Alsryn's capital, Alsrynne City. This banishment was to last until the death of Rhúgaras' last grandson, which occurred in -114 P.S. The banishment was a significant blow to House Blackthorn's power and influence, forcing them to operate from the shadows and rebuild their strength away from the heart of the kingdom.

His actions during the Second Succession Crisis left a lasting impact on the kingdom and solidified the longstanding enmity between House Blackthorn and House Mirrorwind.
