Dardan ibn-Shayan is the current Ilkhan of Megido and husband to Aynur, Ilkhana of Megido, as well as father to Prince Okan ibn-Dardan, Princess Fara bint-Dardan and Princess Fadia bint-Dardan. In his youth, he was an accomplished Fencer, specialized in the Sabre-Dagger. He is also owner of a yacht, the Takhatiy and generally very nautical.
Born in 1969 in Megido as son of Shayan-Ilkhan, Dardan had an interesting childhood: With the Decolonization Wars finished four years before and the Ilkhanate of Megido, which never had large colonial posessions, found itself as one of the mightier Ilkhanates. Despite his parents trying to keep him isolated from courting until it was time, the future Ilkhan of Megido was at times besieged. With the death of Kian-Sultan in 1972 and the ascension of Razia-Sultana Umm Albilad to the throne, he was not left alone, much to his charging and the charging of his parents.
He hated it.
With 13, he was accepted into the Durra'ah Boys' Academy in Megido. Joining the Fencing Team, he flourished in the male-world of the DBA. 1983, aged 14, he got acquainted with the most beautiful woman he would ever meet, as well as with her blade: Aynur bint-Tiana, the daughter of the Khan of Las and a Fencer like himself.
In the future, many Princesses, who had seen his interest in the strong-willed Princess from Arados, took up fencing, but unlike what they assumed, it was not that, that made him fall for her undyingly. It all came to a head in 1987, during a tournament, when he, repeatedly refused, proposed a bet: Should he win, she would go out with him, should she win, he would leave her alone. He fought as if his life was on the line and despite him loosing, she went out with him, impressed by his will and fighting spirit. Nine months later, he was married and his first son, Prince Okan ibn-Dardan, was born.
Strong-willed, very much like his wife, and with a fighting spirit usually focused on what he perceives as the right thing, he is a force to be reckoned with.
He loves his wife deeply and his children as well.
