Lord Ernest Padraig
the lord of Winterhaven
Ernest Padraig is the lord of Winterhaven and is a descendent from the noble family that ruled the area under edict of the old empire. Folks around Winterhaven were happy with his father’s authority and they have found answering to the rules of the new lord just as simple. On the other hand he doesn’t have absolute power, he has been unable to raise a force among villagers to deal with the kobold problem on the old King’s Road to the east.
Padraig commands the Winterhaven Regulars, a core group of ten soldiers who perform guard and police functions around the village.
His wife and 4 sons live in the Manor House which is staffed by 5 servants. The manor is a beautiful example of stone architecture in a village otherwise composed of thatch and wood.

Yet the villagers refuse to recognize the seriousness of the problem. Attacks along the road have grown more frequent over the last few months. Somethng’s stirring the kobolds up. I don’t suppose you would be interested in taking a commission from me? I promise you, I can pay well for your services."
