Rascals of Elturel
Duke Torlin Silvershield
High Artificer, Head Priest of Gond, Duke of the Council of Four
A finely dressed human noble wearing a wooden cog around his neck (the holy symbol of Gond). He wears very fine red and yellow robes that are clearly made from the finest materials, with an extended collar that reaches to just below his ears. A large gold and silver belt with many leather pouches surround his waist. His black hair has grayed at his temples and he keeps a well-trimmed salt and pepper beard.
Leader of the greatest noble house in the city, head priest of its grandest temple, Duke Torlin Silvershield helped to defend the city against Valarken’s coup and helped found the Parliament of Peers. He sees himself as the embodiment of the best of Baldur’s Gate. As such he takes great pains with his appearance and grooming to present a proud example for others to follow. As the high artificer of the richest temple in Baldur’s Gate, that of Gond, god of innovation and technology, Duke Silvershield richly adorns himself with the excellently crafted technological wonders of his god. The Gondar firmly believe in just rewards for labor, so displays of wealth are encouraged as proof of Gond’s favor.
