Lord Peridin Merec
- Race: Aasimar
- Gender: Male
The de-facto ruler of Restwell Keep, Lord Merec is a nearly 50-year- old aasmimar paladin of Erathis. His iron grey hair and tanned, weathered skin point too many long years spent wandering the wilds in search of evil foes to defeat.
In his old age, Merec has decided to settle down while continuing to do what good he can. He sees the keep as a seed that, with the right attention, can bloom into a gleaming bastion of civilisation. He dreams of amassing enough warriors to draw settlers and merchants to the region. In time, he hopes to defeat the evil of the Blackened Dale and turn the entire region into a civilised realm.
Merec’s key weakness lies in his long military experience. While an excellent warrior and a skilled tactician, he has little experience as a politician. The concerns and worries of the folk of the outer bailey strike him as mere complaints. If he could, he would remove them from the keep and relocate them to a safer land. He cannot understand why such folk would want to dwell in the shadow of the Blackened Dale.
Lord Merec has instructed his second in command, Captain Ebony Callahan to keep a keen eye out for promising adventurers. As part of his long-term strategy for reclaiming the region, he wants information on the Blackened Dale.
