  1. I gave my pledge to the dying king, I will see his infant son raised to the Dragonbone Throne. Sir Eglund knows something about the King’s child. He must live long enough to tell me what he knows.
  2. I live to serve Ariadh. Sie Gowen has a sharp eye for detail. I must win him over to service in the shadowed sceptre.
  3. Threats to the Kingdom of Ariadh must be put down brutally.

Aranphir Ap Murdrak. Aranphir, bastard of house Murdrak. Aran wears the derogatory “Ap” with pride. Even more so when the “proper” Murdraks joined Duke Brellig in open rebellion to their rightful King.

Every kingdom has a spy network. Ariadh’s is called “The Shadowed Scepter” by it’s members, as well as among those who whisper of it’s existence without knowing the truth. It is run by a Prime Minister, known as Lord Fear, who directs his ministers, who in turn direct their information rings. Technically it is run by the King, who appointed the Prime Minister, and is the only one outside of the Shadowed Scepter who knows his true identity. Even within the organization he is only known as “Lord Fear”. A bare handful know he is in truth Aranphir Ap Murdrak, the court Astrologer.
