PRONUNCIATION: king uhv fin
ORIGINAL JAPANESE NAME: Unknown
ORIGINS NAME: King of Fynn
DAWN OF SOULS NAME: King of Fynn
ANNIVERSARY EDITION NAME: King of Fynn

    The King of Fynn was the ruler of the kingdom of Fynn and leader of the Wild Rose Rebellion. During the Palamecian Empire's invasion of Fynn, the King was struck in the back by an arrow as he fled the kingdom. He was then confined to his bedchamber in the Rebel Hideout in Altair. His daughter, Princess Hilda, was appointed regent and resumed his duties as leader of the Rebellion. He would continue to advise the young heroes, Firion, Maria and Guy, from his bedside.
    The shock of the attack by the Empire's fearsome warship, the Dreadnought, caused the King's condition to worsen. Hilda appointed Minwu, the White Wizard, to help ease her father's suffering. Although Minwu helped to heal the King's wounds, he feared that his illness extended far beyond the physical ailments. As his health took a severe turn for the worse, the King had one last set of orders for Firion, Minwu and the returned Prince Gordon. To Gordon, he asked that the prince of Kashuan lead the Rebel army and do all he could to aid Hilda. The King ordered Minwu to break the magical seal on the Ultima Tome in the Mysidian Tower, and use the powerful Black Magic spell to bring down the Empire. He then commissioned Firion and his friends to journey to the island of Deist, where they must seek out any surviving members of the mighty Dragoons to aid the Rebellion. With these commands, the King sighed his last breaths and perished. The heroes pledged to carry out the King's last orders and honor his memory.

GAME INFO
    The King of Fynn is found in his bed in the Rebel Hideout in Altair until his death shortly after the heroes rescue Princess Hilda from the Coliseum.

NAME ORIGIN
    A king is a male sovereign and chief authority over a country or people. The word comes from the Old English cyning. The name Fynn may derive from the mythological Irish hunter-warrior hero Fionn mac Cumhaill, Anglicised as Finn McCool. Finn, or Fionn, was actually a nickname meaning "fair" referring to his light hair color.
