A tall and regal knight retired. His advanced years have made him noble and wise. He has pale skin and amber eyes that twinkle with secrets. Sir Arthur Desven tells a tale that he was a crusader in another realm. Having completed his quest, he moved to “gentler climes” outside of Rudo. Some idea, of “gentle,” a country perched on the precepiece of war with forces of otherworlds. His claim to nobility elsewhere, meant little until he obtained a ruined old outpost called Labast. The title was to be given to whatever company could rid the countryside of a goblin band that had made Labast their home. Desven apparently single handedly routed scores of them and claimed the title. Now he is training elite militia and recruiting serfs to his lands. Some speak ill of him that he must be an agent of the Gaiares Empire.
