Cayden Ludlow was born on July 19, 2006, in Meridian, Idaho. Ludlow joined Thebes on June 21, 2019, two days after its founding. He was immediately appointed Consul of Technology by the king at the time, Eithan I. He was one of the five Thebans to first step foot on Cadmea.
On July 13, 2019, the elections for king were held, but the king would not take office until August. Ludlow was one of the six candidates, along with Alex Savage, Charles Miller, Abraham Gage, Caroline Gage, and Declan Welsh. He was, however, removed from the elections, along with Abraham Gage and Declan Welsh, because the king customarily removes half of the candidates. He would later go on to win the 2nd king elections of 2021
On September 11, 2019, Cayden Ludlow and King Charles I led a force to annex the province of Oedipo. Several people living in or around the province were unhappy with this change. Led by Cayden Ludlow's brother, Kody Ludlow, they seceded from Thebes, forming Mugie. Kody Ludlow was declared Emperor Lekolilo I, and he declared war on Thebes. Cayden Ludlow was one of several consuls who endeavored to stop Mugie, and, along with Charles I, wrote the Mugie Treaty and absorbed the Mugie back into Thebes
After a social media scandal in which Alex Savage voiced treasonous things about Thebes, Ludlow spearpointed an effort to remove him from his office. He eventually convinced King Charles I that something should be done. King Charles declared an election would be held for vizier, but Savage could rerun. Cayden Ludlow ran against Savage and James Miller in the elections. He came in last place, however, getting 25% of votes.
Outside of Thebes
Cayden Ludlow is highly involved in activities outside of Thebes. He is involved in Theatre, His company, Ludlow Corporation, and other events regarding his school.
