Notes on the image: The King is seated, one hand on the arm of the throne, but the other hand holds the Wand at the ready to set off on the next mission; he also wears a cloak which means he will not be around for long. He looks pensive; he is not looking directly at us, this indicates he is looking for the next project, and is not really interested in dealing with the nitty gritty of our concerns. The curtain is fully tied back which indicates that this King has full capability in his field. He has little luxury around him because he is happiest being active and using his skills, he needs very little more than this to be happy.
