Geron Arbroath

Geron in Yvel

A weary Geron looks up from the city council at Yvel during the Nether Mask Conflict.

Lord Geron Arbroath or Jeron Couchon is King Richard's Royal Chancellor and a member of the Royal Council in Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos and a minor antagonist in Lands of Lore III.

According to Geron, his family arrived on Wheaton Point seven years prior to the first LeGre. Despite faithfully serving his King for the past three decades, he had always harbored a secret resentment, as his family were the previous rulers of Gladstone before House Chevres took power and were ultimately usurped by Richard's grandfather Blaise LeGré.

During the Nether Mask Conflict, he appeared aloof and short-tempered with the king's Champion, the huline Kieran, refusing to assist him beyond signing the Writ of Passage and failing to heed Kieran's warnings of the witch Scotia and her transformative abilities, even while her black bird form just moments ago landed upon his very window. In the wake of King Richard's poisoning at her hands, he contributed a portion of his mana to the protective magical shroud created by Dawn along with the other councilors, though notably not as much as the others. He bemoaned how she managed to get past Gladstone Keep's defenses, seemingly oblivious to the fact that the Nether Mask had given her this power. He received a Pyramid Key along with the others that would unlock the protective shroud once a cure had been found. While Kieran and Baccata sought out The Draracle, they returned to find the Keep decimated, Richard kidnapped and the royal council having fled across Lake Dread to the City of Yvel. Upon meeting with the Champion again he assisted in solving part of the Riddle Scroll, correctly identifying the "powders taken from the heart of your mother" referred to Earth Powder which could be purchased from Sadie's apothecary, but arrogantly demanded that Kieran turn over the Elixir to him personally after they had been acquired. He refused to hand over his pyramid key until Dawn had been located and brought to Yvel, which Kieran and his companions attempted to do only to find that Scotia had already gotten to her first, killing the caravanner Droek and taking Dawn hostage. Upon their return, the city of Yvel was under siege by the forces of the Dark Army and he ordered the party to defend it while he and the city council locked themselves away. After Kieran succeeded in infiltrating Castle Cimmeria, rescuing Richard and killing Scotia, he rode with King Richard back to Gladstone and was present at the ceremony commemorating Kieran's efforts, declaring "A luckier adventurer Gladstone never saw."

During the events of the Prophecy of Belial, Geron had apparently taken an active role in ensuring the imprisonment of Luther, the son of Scotia, for the crimes of his mother. However, this was met with suspicion by Dawn and was done seemingly without Richard's knowledge or approval.

Overtime, Geron had seemingly reached his breaking point, and carried his indignation at his position with him openly. After the death of Eric the White and his sons Mark and David to a pack of Rift Hounds, he hoped that the throne may finally come to him upon Richard's passing and was infuriated by the presence of Copper whom he saw, ironically, as a threat to Gladstone and potential usurper. He at some point began a love affair with the recently widowed Dame LeGre and conspired in secret to have Copper arrested and tried on the death of his father and two half-brothers, however unsuccessfully. While searching the Keep, Copper discovered a secret chamber behind the bookshelf of Geron's offices that lead down to a room behind the main hall with eyes cutout from Richard's portrait, allowing him to spy upon the king at his discretion. After the Portal Crisis had reached it's apex and plunged Gladstone into chaos, he barricaded the door to Gladstone Keep from it's citizens seeking shelter. When Copper found Richard, who sustained grave injuries after apparently battling the Ru-Loi that came through the portal world against Geron's advice, and gave him a special King's Writ to be presented to Lord Geron allowing Copper access to his personal library and armory. Upon being presented with the writ however, Geron tore it up, calling Richard a delirious fool who was close to death and that Gladstone would need sane men to guide it. His ultimate plans were revealed by a personal letter sent to him by Carmen in her butler Peter's possession, who praised his intention to abscond with the Gladstone royal jewels and found a new kingdom with her at his side.

After Copper successfully conquered the final portal world of the Shattered Desert and defeated Jakel in the Draracle's Cave, he managed to escape the collapsed cavern just in time to find the traitorous councilor making off with the royal jewels, including the Ruby of Truth, in hand. After confronting him and suggesting they return to Gladstone to see if Richard yet lived and await his judgment, he pulled out his knife and attempted to kill Copper before being swiftly and justly ended.
