The Fractured Empire
The First Fort
Lt. Veren is the commander of the military forces currently deployed in the Pass.
Lord Vieren – Lord Governor Of the Pass
Lord Vieren is a soldier through and through. He owes his loyalty and allegiance to the An’Desh Empire and will do nothing to bring harm to his people, even at his own expense. He has very little patience for the “pageantry” that comes with his station and prefers to stick to the warehouse and dockside districts that he oversees.
Note 1 – It seems that he and Hal have a similar mindset and hit it off at the Madesta Ball.
Note 2 – Offered to keep an eye on the warehouse and dockside districts for the party as a thank you for clearing out the Quarry.
Lady Vieren – A lady of influence and knowledge
Unlike her husband, Lord Vieren, she lives for the great game that surrounds the Nobles and has made it her job to keep her husband and by extension, the An’Desh Empire well informed as to the machinations of the noble class of the Pass. Her loyalty is to the Empress Nadine as she was once her handmaiden prior to leaving the Capitol with her husband.
Note – Seems to have come to an understanding with Lyman. Mutual benefit in information shared.
Lady Angelik Vieren – Daughter of the Vierens
An outspoken decrier of Lord Governor Talvas. Preferring to call him the “son of a bitch.” She has worked closely with Lady Madesta to help the poor people of the pass. She is also the lover of Felice Theren. Like her mother, she tries to keep informed of the politics surrounding her daily life.
Note 1 – Trusts the Party because Kira spoke to her after she became distraught over Abilgails death and Balsatra protected her from the Taerian Clay Golem.
Lady Purite – Lady of the Rivers
Lady Purite is the head of all shipping in and out of the Pass. She is known as the “anti-noble” as she acts more like a sailor then a “Lady” of her station. One only meet her to know that this strong willed woman can and will see that her ships are always on time and ready to take on any obstacle and damn the expense.
Note 1 – Danced with Hal. Don’t think he expected anything that occured.

Known as the First Fort, the Keep at Guardians Pass was meant to be the first line of defense from any invasion through the World Gate into the An’Desh Realm. It also serves as the training area for the An’Desh military.
It has since grown into a thriving city under Military Rule.
