Ftr 4, Male human, CN
Kesten is a member of one of Brevoy’s noble houses in name only. A DC 20
Knowledge (nobility) check is enough to recall the scandal when an affair
between Kesten and a lowborn woman named Tania, a weaver’s daughter,
became public knowledge. His father Evan, a cousin of the Garess family patriarch,
disowned Kesten, who fled to Restov to serve as a mercenary. He volunteered to
lead the small group of soldiers to help guard Oleg’s Trading Post after his own
depression and shame grew too much to handle.
Kesten hopes to either make a name for himself as the defender of a remote fort, or to find an honorable death among the bandits and other dangers in the region. In addition to bringing with him an opportunity for another quest (see the inside back cover), Kesten could well grow into an important NPC as the PCs continue to settle the Stolen Lands and grow their nation. For now, Kesten need only be a somewhat moody and morose guard.
