Waldemar Fitzurse

Fitzurse, "wily politician" and adviser to Prince John, serves as conciliator for the arrogant and unwise leader. He mollifies the people whom Prince John insults and wins back those whose loyalties stray. He has a driving ambition to become chancellor to Prince John if the prince can usurp the throne. Although his advice is for the prince's good, it is his own welfare about which he is most concerned.
