- "The court of King Ottmar; shades of my former existence. Proud and self absorbed, surrounded by all the finery of the realm. Secure in their ignorance. As I walked among them I smirked thinking of the carnage that would befall them at the hands of the Legions of the Nemesis... the glorious flames, the inevitable rape and pillage."
The Lion Throne was a once-glorious human kingdom whose monarchy was based in the city of Willendorf. By the events of Blood Omen, it was ruled by King Ottmar from Willendorf Castle. Apparently, Coorhagen and Nachtholm were also loyal to its banner. During his youth, as a human, Kain's allegiance lay with the Lion Throne.
In his quest to restore the Pillars of Nosgoth, Kain forged an alliance with the kingdom's militia - the Army of the Last Hope - against the legions of the Nemesis. The resulting chain of events led to the creation of a new timeline, but, in both versions of history, the Lion Throne was still fated to perish at the hands of Nosgoth's tyrants.
- "My father says that there was a time when the great noble families ruled the land, with a king over all."
