Prince Mikal was the only son of the (unnamed-in-the-books) emperor ruling Cedonia during most of the time period that the Penric books take place in.

After his father died, he was appointed emperor; however, since he was only nine at the time, a regency council was appointed. The council originally consisted of

  • his uncle, Prince Ragat Lafoni
  • his mother, Mikal's father's third wife
  • his brother-in-law, Lord Nao, husband of Mikal's half-sister Princess Laris
  • Minister Methani
  • Lord Bordane, the nephew of Minister Methani
