The king’s son never returned home from the war, and was presumed dead after his troops witnessed him plummet into the Salt Pits. It is believed that he died at the hands of the Salted Ones, malicious beings that drain the sugar of their fellow man. Salt is a destructive element, and those who revel in it become corroded, malformed beasts, losing all sense of kinship with others.

AND MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE: Varian being single because not everyone needs a s/o to be happy and not everyone needs to be in a relationship especially when that relationship is forced and came out of nowhere and reduces him to a love interest that no one cares about but aw he’s kind of cute I guess and I bet he gives mad™ good™ sex but other than that don’t really care about him oops
