<p>Bayle, the leader of the Ethernauts from the stories of which the current expansion is based entirely around. His first (or last) name is never revealed. He's just "Bayle".</p>

<p>Hmm - that would explain why it just says "Bayle"  *lol*  Sorry for my slight ignorance there about this singular-named Bayle character.  I haven't spent a lot of attention on Ethernauts lore yet.</p><p>So there really hasn't been any revelation about who he is, other than "Bayle?"  Or any conspiracy theories?  If there's a thread on this that I'm missing that someone can point me to, I'd appreciate it (:</p>

<p>He went with a bunch of others to fight the void, and he is the founder of the Bayle Line (his picture also appears inside Antonia's castle which you see as part of the TSO sig quest)  My wife thinks that he is hot and it was one of the few loot cards that she really went out of her way to trade for</p>

<p><span style="color: #00ff00;">You </span>say to Bayle, "The Bayle line is well known, now.

<p>Right and we do know that Bayle had a girl-friend (... /thinks how to phrase this nicely for filters) in his village who had at least one solid opportunity to engage in 'reproductive activities.'

<p>Actually, I believe when you talk to Bayle while in the Palace on the TSO signature quest series, you mentioned about Bayle being the name of the current royal family of Qeynos ... he remarked something about his sister and apparent children through her.</p><p>So I suppose after his disappearance into the Void, his sister's family took his name and proceed to have descendants since then.</p><p>Though, I suppose I could be mistaken ... all the line mentioned was "So Danaria's son grew to be a man?"  Might be his own.</p>

<p>Antonio and Antonia are honorific names given to the king or queen of Qeynos from an honour given to the founder. They're of the family line of Bayle and, I think, kept the name Bayle, too, to honour him.</p>

<p>^ Antonius, and not all of them are honorary. Some of the rulers were named Antonius.</p>

<p>There's a couple books on him, available from the bookseller at the top of the mage tower in Qeynos.  "The Commander's Wife" which is, of course, written by his wife, and "From the Trial of Kane Bayle" which records witness testimony from several members of the Qeynos Guard, as well as his mother.  You buy the books, read the first page, and get a quest to kill a bunch of different mobs until you unlock the whole story.  The book you get upon completion can be placed in your house.</p>

He brushed the hair aside and touched his fingers to her cheekbone for just a moment before slipping from her arms deftly, landing on the balls of his feet as he left the bed. He wasn't sure how she had known he'd returned, but sometime just before sleep had taken him fully, he'd awoken to feel her fall onto the bed beside him, whispering, "Welcome home." She was young, just a bit foolish, and he sometimes thought she had only ever taken up with him because her father had forbidden it, but here she was just the same, and Bayle, who was otherwise alone, wasn't about to turn her out."</em></p>

<p>Could <strong>Vallius Bayle</strong> be Bayle's son?</p><p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">From Vhalen:</span></strong></p><p><span style="font-size: xx-small;"><p><span style="font-size: x-small;">As for Qeynos of yore, here is a bit taken from one of my tomes:</span></p><p><span style="font-size: x-small;">... A band of humans made its way through the gnoll infested hills and founded a small fishing village alongside the northern Coldwind Coast shoreline. The shores of the new coastal village were teeming with fish and the land could be easily defended from attack. If most of the resources were put towards the defense, this large village could provide for the scattered human settlements of the plains. This new village must be more than a mere village, it must be a stronghold. The village settlers would send word to the clans of the plains. Most of the human chieftains of the plains voted to migrate to the coast and begin work on reinforcing the construction efforts there. The new sprawling stronghold city was named Oceangreen, after the beauty that nestled it. The defense of Oceangreen and the remaining settlements of the plains demanded the training of a human army. There was no loss of volunteers and the new clan militias of Oceangreen swelled. Each of the nine warrior clans of the militia specialized in their own art of war; each thinking their way was superior to all others. Weekly duels occurred with the winner retaining the ceremonial Qeynos Claymore, an ancient sword returned to the human settlements by an adventuring spirit named <strong>Vallius Bayle</strong>. These duels eventually grew into large bloody battles. Jealousy erupted and the warrior clans began to war with one another. Villagers were forced to choose sides or be beaten. Walls between the clans soon were erected. The new city of Oceangreen was beginning to look as barbaric as the Northland clans that the humans left so long ago. ...</span></p></span></p>

I'm sure before the city of Qeynos had a King/Queen, the town of Qeynos had a cheiftan, or a potentate, or some other ruler on a much smaller scale, the village had an even smaller scale ruler. Danaria's son may not have been the start of the dynasty (esp in light of Vhalen's old post), more likely the the great, great, etc grandpa of the first King.</p><p>However, if the tribe is looking at two men to be their leader. One has a father is was known to be a war-leader (as Bayle was in the battle at Oceangreen) and the other has a father know to be a tailor. With everything else being equal, the warrior's son stands a better chance to be selected leader because of the assumption that the son should have inherited some of the father's weapons skills and leadership. Thus ability plus possible inherited traits might have been enough to get some decendant of the Ethernaught Bayle a push into 'local government' which lead to more powerful positions as the area and people to be governed increased.</p>

If you read the Ethernaughts story of Bayle's return to Oceangreen you will notice how they each gave up thier names and where no longer part of the old clan. It would make sence then that being that Bayle was a hero of the Void War that his name would go down as the start of a new Clan.</p>

<p>I'm curious. Is there any indication that there is something that will argue against the Bayle lineage? I just notice the words of "presumably" and "possibly" and such. I just think in terms of the game lore, the royal lineages (Bayle, Thex, Sathir, etc) are more, or less, straightfoward and linear.</p><p>Just a thought.</p>

<p>Well I am not sure I understand your question. </p><p>The game lore does not specifically say for instance, that Shirrana is definately a decendant of Shaonia.  However it DOES say that Shirrana is 1/64th Elvish blood, and that she was raised at Tearfall.</p><p>Official lore also states that Shaonia was the daughter of Lady Shea and Antonius Bayle IV, making her 1/2 Elvish blood, and that Lady Shea and Shaonia fled to the Sisters Isle from Freeport, where they remained.</p><p>So putting 2 + 2 together, and making an educated guess, Shirrana is listed as a *possible* (probably should be a *probable*), decendant of Shaonia.  Which would mean, if this is a correct assumption, that Shaonia was Shirrana's great, great, great, grandmother.</p><p>However, as the lore does not specifically verify this, it must be qualified when listing the possible relationship of the two.</p><p>Vhalen lists that there was indeed an Antonius Bayle VI, and an Antonius Bayle VII; but he does not specifically state that Antonius Bayle the VI is the son of Antonius Bayle the V, or the father of Antonius Bayle VII.  One can make a logical assumption that this is the case, but until it is absolutely stated to be so, the relationship remains qualified with a *presumably*  After all, the twins, Anton and Antea, fall between Antonius Bayle IV, and Antonius Bayle V.  It is possible, (though not probable), that the succession did not pass uniformly from father to son.  And so we hedge our bets, and qualify the absolute veracity of the lineage.</p><p>Likewise for Bayle the Ethernaut and Vallius, and for Vallius and Antonius Bayle I.  Known facts concerning each one imply circumstantially that they were related in the manner listed, but unless or until it is specifically stated that the relationships are correct as listed, they also get a qualifier.</p><p>As for Kyle: again, circumstantial evidence indicates he was at least contemporaneous with Antonius Bayle IV and Kane Bayle, but offers no concrete relationship verification, so the relationship is a *probable* one, but not an officially verified one.</p><p>And now, with the departure of the last lore developer, we may never have verification of this lineage, (or a host of other loose ends).</p><p>I am not sure if that was what you were asking or not.</p>
