Major and Lesser NPCS of Tethyr: The Duchy of Cape Velen

Postby LoneNurgling » Thu Aug 24, 2017 5:34 pm

The Duchy Of Cape Velen
Composed of Counties Firedrake, Fyraven, and Greenshores.
-The Dragon’s Neck Peninsula, sometimes called the Velen Peninsula and whose westernmost tip is Cape Velen, is a lightly populated duchy of hardy, loyal folk who have tremendous respect for their native duke and count. While quite a number of folk in lowland Tethyr sniff at the thought of living on the peninsula, the natives there are proud to reside in the clan homelands where free Tethyr began. The folk of the peninsula are not much bothered by the ghosts that inhabit their lands. (From the "Lands of Intrigue" Books)

Character Name: Duke Llachior Blackthorn Aliases:_______________________________
Title/Positions:The Duke of Cape Velen Age:____ Race: Human Residence:Outside the city of Velen
Class 1: Fighter lvl 15 Class 2:___________ Class 3:___________Sex: Male Deity:____________
Guilds:______________________ Family: Blackthorn Properties: Castle Tordraken
Alignment: Chaotic-Good
Description, Other:
-Duke Llachior Blackthorn; Lord Royal Durbland, The burly and boisterous Velean merchant, whose family misfortunes left him the last of his line, is now a prominent figure at court. His bravery in battle with the Reclamation Army cost him two fingers off his left hand, and he now walks with a stiff limp from a horrific gash along his right leg, suffered in a desperate saber fight with Prince Jhannivvar the Pretender in the Storm Siege of Myratma. Still, the duke found love among the heroes of the Reclamation, and returned to his native Velen both a duke and a married man.
-Duke Llachior is rather annoyed that he must remain at Faerntarn to do much of the reconstruction and planning for Tethyr’s economy. He wishes to go adventuring—just a little bit.

Character Name:Consort Lawantha Silendia Blackthorn Aliases:_______________________________
Title/Positions:The Duchess of Cape Velen Age:____ Race:Human Residence:______________
Class 1:Wizard lvl 13 Class 2:___________ Class 3:___________Sex: Female Deity:____________
Guilds: Company of Eight Family: Blackthorn Properties:_____________________
Alignment:Neutral-Good
Description, Other:
-After joining the Loyalist army as part of the Company of Eight a year earlier, the last thing the Calishite wizardess expected to find was love, yet the loud but kind-hearted warrior-merchant from Velen felt the same. Married while recuperating from the disastrous First Siege of Myratma, their mutual admiration and feeling showed many it was not simply battle fear or momentary passion that brought them together. The two opposites complement each other and Lawantha’s family connections in Calimshan have brought both peace initiatives and trade opportunities between the two countries.
-The Duchess-Consort Lawantha Blackthorn caused a bit of flurried gossip at last Harvestcourt, where the royal children were first shown to the court. Lawantha burst into tears upon seeing them, and fled from the hall without leave from the king or queen. Duke Llachior, clearly embarrassed, declined to discuss the cause of his wife’s outburst.
-While few will ever say anything against the duke, many are dissatisfied with his choice for a wife. As settlers of the Homelands, many on Cape Velen harbor old prejudices against Calishites. Those people who come into contact with the duchess-consort swiftly change their minds about Lady Lawantha, just as those among the central lowlands did when she was among the Company of Eight, but there are far more people who simply see her as a Calishite and a bad influence on the duke.
-The duchess Lawantha is the most famous of mages in Velen and a former member of the Company of Eight.

County Firedrake
Firedrake contains the following settlements: The Fortified City of Velen.
-While it is the most populated county on Cape Velen, County Firedrake is also the most dangerous, as its waters and coasts are constantly harassed by pirates. The folk of County Firedrake make use of the wide beaches along the peninsula’s head, becoming glassworkers, fishermen, and shipbuilders.(From the "Lands of Intrigue" Books)

Character Name:Count Ondul Jarduth Aliases:The Warhammer, The Purse Chancellor
Title/Positions:The Count of Firedrake Age:____ Race:Human Residence:City of Velen
Class 1:Cleric lvl 10 Class 2:___________ Class 3:___________Sex:Male Deity:Helm
Guilds:______________________ Family:Jarduth Properties:Millvuthan Manor in the city of Velen
Alignment:Lawful-Neutral
Description, Other:-The count of Firedrake, the soft-spoken Helm-priest is a figure of much speculation among the nobility. A favored longtime friend of his duke, Llachior Blackthorn, Count Ondul is an absentee count as he is often at either the duke’s court or at Faerntarn. Despite his frequent absences, he is much loved and respected by his people in Velen. Still, a number of powerful merchants and other lessers try to undermine his influence by spreading rumors of wrongdoing on the count’s part, in order to loosen the new foothold of law on the peninsula and return some illegal pirate shipping to hidden coves and ports. Luckily, only the most gullible believe the tales, as Count “Warhammer” made a reputation of his upright, moral, and lawful lifestyle.
-Unbeknownst to her, Count Ondul has fallen deeply in love with the duchess Marilyn Haresdown from the moment of their first meeting on the plains outside Myratma. Her passion and intensity draws him to her, but she has yet to notice any of his shy advances toward her, smitten as she is with another. The count frequently is presented with eligible women from his home as potential brides, but he simply waits in hopes of seeing the duchess of the Purple Marches at Faerntarn again.

Residents of the Fortified City of Velen
-The most haunted city in Tethyr and the entire Sword Coast South, Velen surprises travelers, who expect a superstitious, insular community. When they find this lively port of call filled with happy, vibrant folk, they are quite surprised, and many love Velen just for those contrasts. To a native of Zazesspur (not other Tethyrians), “going to Velen” means “going crazy” since that’s what one would have to be to live among the constant dangers from the sea (as well as all the ghosts); the rest of the country respects and admires the pluck and spirit of the Veleans.
-Count Undul “Warhammer” Jarduth, Duke Llachior Blackthorn, and the Duchess-Consort Lawantha Silendia-Blackthorn, as the local nobles of Velen, are those notables to whom Whettimn must defer if they are present. However, they do not run roughshod over his leadership and rarely interfere with Velen’s business. They sometimes back up the mayor’s actions or mitigate a wrong done due to his temper and bigotries. Whettimn is slowly taking a liking to the duchess-consort, despite his hatred of wizards and Calishites. (From the "Lands of Intrigue" Books)

Character Name:Whettimn Aliases:_______________________________
Title/Positions:Mayor of Velen Age:____ Race:Human Residence:City of Velen
Class 1:Fighter lvl 4 Class 2:___________ Class 3:___________Sex:______ Deity:____________
Guilds:______________________ Family:_________________ Properties:_____________________
Alignment:Chaotic-Good
Description, Other:
-Whettimn is a well-liked mayor and rich landowner in town, who made his money whaling, fishing, and pirate hunting. If major political change is in the offing, the mayor almost always follows the lead of Zazesspur’s Council, to stay in step with local politics and maintain good relations. While normally a kind and pleasant (if slightly loud) person, Whettimn loses his temper when confronted with Calishite snobbery against his town or the work of evil gods (A former adventurer, Whettimn briefly encountered both the corsairs and the slave pits of Calimshan and near-death by sacrifices within temples to Bane, Myrkul, and Vhaerun.).

Guilds:______________________ Family:_________________ Properties:_____________________
Alignment: Neutral-Evil
Description, Other:
-Aulis “Redbeard” is a brash, foulmouthed young mageling-warrior who spends more time trying to impress either his captain, Dessek Atheon, and shipmates or the young ladies of Velen. Neither group is entirely taken with him, though he has gained the notice of some agents of the Twisted Rune as a possible lesser agent and spy (or scapegoat), given his greed, bluster, and views against the monarchy.

The former leader, Orm Talath, was much loved in Velen, and his choice of Orrdun is respected. The Stalwart Knights comprise an entire division of the Champions Vigilant; they often exchange priests and knights with Chevangard.
