Crypts of the Barrowmaze
Lord Alver Rana
Duke of Helbend, Lord of Castle Blackmoss
Heavyset, a warrior gone to fat in his middle years. Wide mouth and flattened nose, watery blue eyes, thinning blond hair, bushy mustache. Looks a bit like Bob Keeshan/Captain Kangaroo. Jolly, enthusiastic, hale fellow well met. Not unusually bright. Likes a drink. Endlessly optimistic.
Alver Rana was established as Duke of Helbend with the aid of patrons in the Cities of Air and Water. He can (disputably) trace his bloodline through a merchant clan in Shamuti all the way back to the days of the Lords of Gaxx, when the Duchy of Helbend still existed.
