Ias dy Chalion, known as Ias the Good and Ias the Unlucky, was roya of Chalion before Orico; he reigned for 35 years. He was the sixth son and only surviving child of Fonsa the Fairly Wise, and became roya on Fonsa's death in working death magic on the Golden General. Ias was married twice, first to a Brajaran noblewoman, and then to Ista, youngest daughter of the Provincar dy Baocia. Ias's long-time lover was Arvol dy Lutez. Ista says that Ias died of grief and guilt over the death of dy Lutez in a failed attempt to break the curse of Chalion.
