The legendary Dezmod (or Desmond) was one of the first three human kings on the Continent, with the other two being Sambuk and Radovid I. He was the king of Temeria but not much concrete information about him survives, though he's featured in a variety of jokes, proverbs, anecdotes, and adages. He was also much revered by dwarves.
It's unknown how many generations are between him and the next known Temerian king and one of his descendants, Geddes.
