The road not taken
Lord Claude-Bennett Amour
At the age of 52, Claude-Bennett is feeling his age. His stress as much as his age has worn down his once good looks,but his intimidating eyes show everything that one needs to know about the man. His grace with a rapier is superior to all but the most skilled of swordsmen, and even old age has been unable to change that. He is ruthless in his pursuit of making a better name for his legacy, even if that means killing off his own family to do it. His current greatest hope at making his family strong is his daughter and likely heir. He is slow to anger but harsh in his judgments and has absolutely no tolerance for the weak. His motivation stems from an entire family legacy that has made his position a joke among those he serves and those he rules. His banishment of his son is a secret that everyone knows and nobody mentions. Recently he has turned to Svorinn as a means of improving his family’s power. He has sent different groups of merchants, mercenaries, and explorers all with the intent of taking everything the land has to offer, and killing off any who get in his way.
