The Frozen City
Before the The Frost Ptolus was a single city within the Empire of Tarsis as such Ptolus had a Commissar who acted as a regional governor: an administrator who manages the city in the Emperor’s stead. Of course even then the Empire’s slow disintegration meant Ptolus thought of its self as independent. The current Commissar is Wylen, a native of Tarsis who has lived in Ptolus and acted as its administrator for well over a hundred years, well before The Frost. Wylen remains quite popular among Ptolusites; and even with two emperors living within the city he maintains his position as the leader of the city.
