First Appearance: LIAB 12

King Slately is the Ruler of Jetstone faction. He has been a king for over three thousand turns.

He has popped twenty-three sons and daughters. Among them Victor, Lustrius, Titas, Forthewin, Wonderloaf, Ansom, Ossomer, and Tramennis.

Slately claims that his practice of signamancy has changed his appearance over time, turning him short and fat to reflect his sedentary lifestyle. During his 3000 turns of kingship he has only seen a battle once and that from a heavily guarded turret. Again, signamancy is meant to reflect the character or personality of a unit as well as its rank.

Speculation

After the defeat at Gobwin Knob, King Slately approached some sides, including Haggar, and tried to persuade them to join the second Royal Crown Coalition. He may have approached Jitterati and Carport, but if so, his efforts failed.

Real World References

The name of the faction, Jetstone, seems to be a portmanteau of the names of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons The Jetsons and The Flintstones. King Slately's name is an amalgamation of the names of the bosses on the two shows, Mr. Spacely (Jetsons) and Mr. Slate (Flintstones).

King Slately's appearance is based on the King of Hearts and King of Diamonds from a playing card deck. Slately's coloring and design are closer to the traditional King of Hearts, but his mustache only appears on the King of Diamonds.
