The young prince spent most of his early teens in the company of his grandfather, sitting at many of his council mettings, and attendances, often writting down events that have took place. There were many times when Walter assisted the Master of Coin. They both would attempt settle the affairs and debts of the Human Royal Government

Walter was also responsible for drawing maps, and seeking out new areas of which were not yet descovered, and translating them onto a sheet of parchment. Walter was known to have drawn down many locations up until that point were not known. 


At the age of 30 Walter was tasked with travelling to the city Phylon, to attend a meeting with the dwarves. The prince ventured forth with over twenty skilled soldiers, however as a horrific storm threw them off course, and caused them to stumble off the Titian Road, they were forced into Greatwood Forest.

After several days of the terrible storm, they were completely lost within the great forests. Walter tried to send out ravens, but none managed to fly within the harsh rains. Many of the soldiers died from fevers, and diseases, which caused few of them to abandon Walter to escape the weather. 

With only 12 soldiers left, the storm ended and they managed to escape the forests. However they were greeted by a clan of orcs. The orcs brutally slaughtered the soldiers, leaving Walter alive. The prince tried to plead with the orcs, offering them gold and riches. The Ki of the orcs, tore the throat out of Walter to shut him up, and tossed his remains into a ditch and set him ablaze along with the other soldiers. 

Skills and TalentsEdit

Walter was highly intelligent like his older brother, Bilious III Heartan. Walter spent many years educating himself, and learning to write and read. He was one of the youngest people at the time to be able to fully understand several languages. 

As a scribe he was very smart, and could use his mind to do wonders, and even helped many nobles settle affairs. However due to his intelligence, this caused Walter to pay little attention to swordplay, which made him very weak in combat.
