Current regent: Yldir Vac
Yldir Vac applies his laws without mercy. Within few years law and order were reestablished in the war-torn Ren. Initial commotions and riots caused by the cruel regency were ended in bloodshed. Other groups surrendered to the power of King Yldir Vac. The government keeps the population poor and supresses upcoming changes. Typical life for the people is to work, beget children and die. The population does not know where Yldir Vac came from since there are no records of his name or origins.
