Red King

The Red King, co-architect of the Citadel and consort to the Red Queen, stands as a complex figure, embodying the duality of preservation and power. His legacy is intricately intertwined with the Citadel's very foundations, having poured his intellect and vision into creating a sanctuary amid chaos. Unlike his wife, the Red King does not revel in authoritarian rule; rather, he is a pragmatist, deeply valuing the order and stability that their reign has imposed upon the remnants of humanity. His brilliance in engineering and governance played a pivotal role in the Citadel's rise from the ashes of the old world, envisioning it as a beacon of hope and human achievement. Yet, as the Red Queen's methods grew increasingly draconian, the Red King found himself ensnared in a moral quandary, choosing to prioritize the illusion of peace over the cries for freedom echoing within the Citadel's walls.

The Red King's silence in the face of tyranny is not borne of malice but from a calculated belief that any disruption to the status quo threatens the fragile semblance of order they've managed to uphold. He views his wife's iron-fisted approach as a necessary, if distasteful, means to maintain the Citadel's security and prosperity. Internally, he wrestles with the consequences of his choices, trapped between his ideals of harmony and the reality of his complicity. Despite this, he remains a visionary at heart, dreaming of an era where the need for such measures fades into memory. His relationship with the Red Queen is one of both collaboration and silent contention, bound together by their shared history and the monumental task of guiding humanity's last bastion.
