Patriarch Aleksyev is a 45-year-old Traladaran cleric; his parents, too, were clerics in the Church of Traladara in Specularum. Aleksyev was a 15-year-old novice cleric the “Thyatian Invasion” came. He watched his parents, participants in the Marilenev Rebellion, perish when the Rebellion was suppressed. Initially embittered by these events, he threw himself into his clerical studies in the hopes of becoming a mighty wielder of clerical magic and driving the invaders from Traladaran shores. By the time he had become Patriarch of his Church in Specularum, though, his clerical studies, growing emotional maturity, and surprisingly cordial relations with Oliver Jowett had wrought a change in him; he gradually became dedicated to the idea of Traladara regaining its Golden Age through peaceable means and directed faith.
Aleksyev is a complicated man. Though he’s a formidable warrior-cleric, he is dedicated to bringing his ideals to reality through peaceful means wherever possible. Though he is determined that Traladaran blood rule over Traladara again, he thinks this should be done by peaceable assimilation of the Thyatian population into the Traladaran. He still carries bitterness against the Duke for the death of his parents, but does not conspire against the man or use his political sway to damage the royal family. He is actually rather fond of Oliver Jowett of the Church of Karameikos, but knows he has a true enemy in Patriarch Alfric.
Aleksyev is of medium height and muscular build. His hair, beard, and mustache, close-trimmed and neat, are jet-black, as are his eyes. He wears bright Traladaran robes. In times of war, he will wear full plate mail and carry the war hammer which belonged to his father.

DMing Notes: Any player-character clerics of the Church of Traladara will theoretically be allies of Patriarch Aleksyev. When the war of the churches occurs (as described under Patriarch Alfric’s writeup), he will naturally try to enlist all Traladaran clerics to his side and send them on missions for his Church.
