Both she and Caliphim were advancing in years and wished desperately for a child. Finally, their wish was granted in the form of their only child. However, they lacked for a son and had no suitable candidates for a proper husband for their child. Both traits proved their downfall, as Vizier Abdul Alhazred used these desires to insinuate himself in the court. Caliphim and Allaria trusted him implicitly, and were unaware with his involvement with the Black Cloak, and his collaboration with Mordack to be rid of Cassima so he could have the throne. During Cassima's captivity, Alhazred slipped into the King and Queen's bedchamber and stabbed them to death. Their murders unavenged and their daughter unprotected, their spirits were trapped on the surface of the Land of the Dead, unable to move forward.
Alexander arrived to the underworld, and found the King and Queen wandering the surface, among the few spirits who hadn't gone mad from their torment. Allaria was greatly impressed by this young gentleman who would be willing to challenge death itself for the sake of their daughter. Allaria gave Alexander her ticket to the underworld so that he could pass beyond the gates for an audience with Samhain.
Alexander was able to challenge Samhain for her soul allowing her and Caliphim to live again. As they made their way back to the Isle of the Crown, they asked Alexander to go ahead and sneak into the castle while they gathered allies for the inevitable confrontation with the wicked Vizier. It was Allaria who declared that the "Cassima" at the wedding was an impostor.
After the defeat of Alhazred and the wedding of Alexander to Cassima, Caliphim and Allaria abdicated rulership of the islands to their daughter and son-in-law.
Behind the scenesEdit
The rescue of Allaria and Caliphim from the Land of the Dead is the optional, long path. In the "short" path, the Queen and King remain dead, but the defeat of Alhazred and rescue of their daughter presumably allow them to rest.
