Lord Warden Faren Parthenor
The hereditary lord of Fallcrest
Lord Faren Parthenor is a human man in his 60s with traditionally aristocratic features. Balding, with a fringe of long, curling gray hair, Lord Faren dresses simply but elegantly, with the Sword of Vendair Dragonslayer at his side.
A scion of the Parthenor family, the hereditary Lords Warden of Fallcrest, Lord Faren has acquired a well-earned reputation for justice and mercy during his reign.
His late marriage to Lady Esme proved a minor scandal. Lord Faren was fifty and Esme a mere fifteen when they married. A decade and a half later, the contrast between them is even starker.
Recently, he’s fallen victim to a mysterious wasting illness that doctors, sages, and mystics have been unable to name.
