Bio:

Narrative

Born to the Lyndmoore family that merged a sucessful merchant with minor nobility several generations ago. Gwaethon grew up in the sea ward surrounded by the little luxuries that a large and sucessful family could provide. In keeping with his name (elvish:oath-weaver) and position as a son of a cadet line he carried on the noble tradition of joining the martial orders of the Just god Torm under whose auspices the family has endured. The elven family matriarch Lady Valna, who is still in morning for her human husband, blessed his choice and still keeps an eye on one of her favorite grand-son’s adventures. Other members of the familiy have been less than pleased that he has not used his position to benifit the family’s interest.
Political maneuvering by a rival family resulted in a posting five years ago as an arbiter in Daggerford. While Gwaethon misses the City of Splendors he has enjoyed the duty of resolving issues of justice and contracts among the merchants and citizens of Daggerford, though the recent politial changes have kept him extremely busy and frustrated. He works well with Valkus Dun and is an active participant in his congregation, and the highpriest has counseld him in several recent contract cases. He has developed a bit of an interest in Mélinde due to their shared enjoyment of Dragonchess and he can regularly be found in Lazare’s working on his skills, which while hardly meager, are nowhere near a match for the local masters just yet. He keeps rooms at the Daggerford Barracks. Unless things improve in the village Gwaethon is seeking another posting either as an arbiter eslewhere or to prove himself questing and be granted unattached duty.

Other Player Characters

  • Séadna and Gwaethon regularly drill together with the militia and Gwaethon has often attended the inns where she tells stories. He respects her as a combatant but has never really gotten an handle on using a sword as big as hers. He also has sent letters through his family from Séadna to her brother Conell, but has yet to tender a reply. He knows that she is from Waterdeep, and probably well-born, and suspects that she and the young woman who disappeared in scandal three years ago are one and the same. He hasn’t discussed it with her assuming that she has her reasons. Generally they get along and trust each other as fellow combatants and half-elves. Wanderlust is hitting both of them after years in the same town and they have often talked of where they might travel, though not necessarily together. She however needs some more money to travel, and he needs to be allowed to change post and quest rather than sit behind a desk most of the time.
  • Gwaethon and Dara know of one another by working on missions for the Garrison together. Once, on a mission to kill a marauding beast Gwaethon was able to use Dara’s insight to provide a solution that saved the troops from significant risk, and kept the beast alive. After that, she recommended him to the elders to help deal with mining and farming disputes, having proven that he took their ways of life seriously. The two have had a professional sort of friendship since, not being particularly close, but respecting and appreciating each other’s opinions and advice. They do often end up in the same taverns when Seadna tells stories but only regularly see each other when the garrison needs both of their services.
  • Pischio and Gwaethon are only vaguely aware of each other. Gwaethon knows Pischio by sight but that is because Goliaths sort of stand out. In the few months that Pischio has been in town Gwaethon has dealt with several issues between the Bronzewood lodge and the various mines and Pischio’s expert knowledge has aided the negotiations.

  • Briel Lyndmoore, Child, Gwaethon’s sister, he hasn’t seen her in over a year. He loves her dearly, but is at times overly protective. He may not approve of some of her more risky adventures.
