King Alteon Goldenborn is the king of Swordhaven. He wields the powerful Gold Dragon Blade, a sword hand crafted by one of Bahamut's first champions during the beginning of the Dragon wars. Even though he is still a mighty warrior, age is catching up to him and he is no longer as strong as he once was. He was badly wounded by The Shadow, who interrupted the battle between him and the Dark King Terronium, who was once his ancestor's greatest friend during the Age of Kings.
Following The Shadow's attack, King Alteon formed a truce with the dragon King Bahamut to put about an end to the Dragon Wars and gain the aid of many heroes across Faerun.
When the Utopian age began, Alteon was seated upon the throne as the High King of Aldrazar and later the Zarian Kingdoms and gifted immortality by Elveron's spirit by merging with his soul, thus relinquishing him of his fatigue due to age.
