Paul John Komnenos (1260-1320) was the first member of Komnenoi dynasty to establish the Aftokratoría of Gazopolis. He is known as "The Greek Butcher" and remains among the most hated people in the history of Parkducentrale.


Early life[edit]

Paul John Komnenos was born to John Komnenos and his legal wife Empress Irene of Hungary. However, his childhood was rebellious and his proud nature complicated matters. Court nobles had understood that he would never inherit. His mother would soothe and calm him and his father would shout at him. This was their daily routine.

Upon reaching maturity and making himself content with the fact that he would never inherit, he decided to take control of annual raids in the boundary provinces. He would become famous for his raids and earned the epithet "The Gold-Bringer".


His father removed him from the raider post to prevent his popularity to overshadow the popularity of his elder brother Emperor Alexios II. In retaliation, he along with his loyal troops and fleet would escape to an isolated Island; where they would plan the Byzantium-Gezir War.
