Keep on the Shadowfell
He is rather lean and his hair is going grey, he looks stressed. His clothes are grand and expensive but worn and well used. He seems to be enjoying a well earned pint. He has long blonde hair behind which are sad green eyes.
Ernest Padraig, the Lord of Winterhaven, is descended from the noble family that ruled the area under edict of the old empire. Folks around Winterhaven were happy with Lord Padraig’s father’s authority, and they have found answering to the rules of the new lord no more arduous. On the other hand, Padraig doesn’t have absolute power. For instance, he has been unable to raise a force from among the villagers to deal with the kobold problem on the road. Padraig commands the Winterhaven Regulars, a core group of ten soldiers who perform guard and police functions in and around the walled portion of the village. The Regulars patrol in pairs. To augment this force, Padraig can muster a group of about fifty civilians, given a day’s notice. However, he can only do this if the village itself is threatened—the villagers have no desire to patrol the road beyond the farms.
From time to time he visits Wrafton’s. All those present doff their hats and call him Lord, after which he retreats to a corner table and sips beer.
Lord Padraig resides in the Winterhaven manor house. He shares the home with his wife, four sons and five servants.
