|Faction||House of Ballads|
- There is no need to kneel. Honestly. I wish I could do away with all of this king nonsense altogether. The tragedy we face... it is not legend. It is real. It is now. Yes, I am the acting Wencen, but the true king has been gone for many seasons; I am the fifth such Fae to hold the title, and at times like this, I wish I did not.
King Wencen is the leader of the House of Ballads and one of the seven greatest heroes in Summer Fae history. The original Wencen defeated the Maid of Windemere centuries ago, and like the rest of the original members of the Ballads, left (either through death or leaving).
The current Wencen that the Fateless One encounters is actually the fifth person to take up his mantle. He is very friendly and welcoming to him/her, mentioning that Hallam the White had already informed him of his/her accession to the seat of Sir/Lady Sagrell and that he/she was more than competent enough to handle his/her new position.
King Wencen will first be encountered in the Ballads Oratory in Ettinmere. After finishing the quest Ballad of Bloody Bones, he will be located at the Court of Enchantments at the House of Ballads in Odarath.
During the quest Ballad of Bloody Bones:
During the quest Two Knights and a Troll:
During 'The Hero and the Maid':
- The Fateless One has a chance to succeed King Wencen but still as Sir Sagrell if he/she chooses to defeat the Maid of Windemere.
- When the Fateless One approaches Castle Windemere together with King Wencen, the King leaves, just before meeting the Maid, saying he doesn't have the courage to do this. After completing the quest, the other members of the House of Ballads are dismayed to learn of their former king's cowardice.
