The House of ShadowLore
Lord Warden Faren Markelhay
Faren Markelhay is a balding, middle-aged human with a keen mind and a dry wit. He is a busy man and sees to local matters personally, so adventurers calling on him are likely to wait a long time for a short interview. However, he is eager for news of other towns in the Vale (and farther lands as well) and never turns away someone who brings him news or waits to see him.
Lord Markelhay’s wife is Lady Allande Markelhay, and together they have four children; the eldest, Ernesto, is currently away in the south, living in the court of another ruler.
