Dead in Thay (S&K)
A former adventurer and Purple Dragon knight of
Cormyr, Sir Isteval is living out his retirement in Daggerford.
Believing that his homeland was a shining
example of everything that a nation should be, he
assembled several groups of like-minded adventurers to
fight against chaos and evil. His former companions are
spread across the Heartlands and the North.
In a fateful battle against an ancient green dragon,
Isteval suffered a grievous wound to his leg that has
never been able to be fully healed. This wound means
that his greatest quests are now behind him. Although
he is no longer able to fight as he did in his youth,
Isteval still seeks to bring together brave souls to fight
against encroaching darkness.
Isteval is a paladin of Amaunator, but he views the
god in an outmoded light as Lathander, the god of dawn
and new beginnings. In these days of chaos, through
his faith, Isteval sees the birth pangs of a new age that
he believes will bring peace and prosperity. Although
many trials lie ahead, he is convinced that a far fairer
place lies at journey’s end.
Isteval is slender and tawny-skinned with dark
brown hair salted with gray. He often wears the plate
armor of a knight, although his left leg is braced and he
carries a walking stick as well as his greatsword. His
armor is decorated with the holy symbol of Lathander.
