Bio:

Geron is now the Duke of Easting and Rohadur’s liege lord.

Father to Agatha. Her mother, Jenny, and sister are both dead to a plague of some sorts. Agatha suffers from a related condition.

Ser Geron is called “the Gallant” by most commoners, he is known to fancy the moniker very much. Ser Geron earned the moniker “the Gallant” when the war was in full tilt. He was forced to stay home after the death of his older brother Lucan. During the war, a horde of orcs rode in from the west and were ransacking the areas around Easting. Geron, at the age of 15 and only a squire, led what knights he had remaining and the city guard to face them and end their slaughter. He led the charge against the orcs and is said to have slain many of them personally. He was injured whilst fighting the orc war chief but was saved by the timely intervention of his Master-at-arms, Ser Victor. The battle was won, most of the orcs were killed or routed. Ser Victor Knighted him in the town square of Easting, and gave him the moniker “the Gallant” in full view of hundreds of the city’s people.

Previous Identity: Ser Victor

Ser Victor is a tall, attractive, well muscled man. He wears well worn leather armor with a chain shirt over it. He has medium-length golden hair a beard and bright green eyes. He claims to be a skilled warrior and a Knight, although you have never seen any evidence of it.

He claims to be an unlanded Knight in service to House Garlan, who controls the Duchy of Easting.

He claims his wife owns a successful tavern & inn, he says he will offer you their savings of 200 Royals and free room and board for a lifetime if you escort him back to Easting.

He lied, his nearly-tearful confession came when Brinley questioned him about his life and pressed the matter of the life savings. He claimed his tavern had actually burned down, and that he was trying to claim the bounty the Baron set to get the funds necessary to rebuild his wife’s tavern. Now he says he just wants to make it back alive to see his wife and children.

During the boat-ride towards Easting, many of the party questioned him further. Most came to the conclusion that he is earnest in his desires to see his wife and children. They also uncovered that Sir Victor was not old enough to fight in the war proper, instead serving in a militia and killing bandits that roamed the countryside while the soldiers were off fighting. He admitted to keeping many of the spoils of war that rightfully belonged to those they stole from, saying he had no way of finding who they belonged to. He regrets his actions, but admits there is nothing he can do about it now.

During the trip to Easting, he showed apperent genuine concern for the citizens of Easting, rushing to their defense along with the party.

He was gravely injured trying to defend the townspeople while the party was away, however due to their keen minds and quick action he survived the injury.
