Count Haidar Varonis
The Count of Dolconde, nominally the Noble ruler of Bash Kalla
Count Haidar is a gruff man who often seems to be slightly harried by something (his duties, his city, the mud on the road, whatever). Count Haidar’s wife died in childbirth. Their daughter, Delidina, survived. The Count’s sister, Lady Sahina, has helped him to raise his daughter and run his household.
When his daughter was found dead, Count Haidar’s attitude became harsh rather than harried. He ordered many other groups of adventurers, soldiers, and priests to join the efforts to find and destroy the Face-stealing killer.
