Byron Rathbone

The madman


Matted gray hair, a layer of gray and black stubble covers his face. He wears the clothes of an aristocrat, except that they are tattered and filthy. He has shifty haunted eyes and a large scar the stretches from the left corner of his lip to the lob of his left ear.

Byron’s family was murdered some ten years ago. The brilliant quick silver smith claimed that it was the work of a wild beast, but the common belief is that he went mad and tore them apart himself. He was supposedly tried and he requested to have his tie with arcane magic severed. Rumor has it he continued to practice silver smelting without protection which only drove him deeper into madness.

Now he roves about the town muttering to a silver spear head. He frequents The Black Rose where he begs for food and consumes left over drinks. Even though he carries something that could likely be used as a weapon, and his is raving mad, people don’t view him as much of a threat.
