Located on the Isle of Maar in the middle of the Korannon Basin, this is one of the oldest surviving examples of Old Empire architecture. The ruling council is composed of a number of different Eladrin lords (although non-Eladrin are not necessarily discriminated against, precedence is largely determined by the duration of a family’s influence, and the Eladrin families were here from close to the beginning) Whichever Lord is the chair of the council is not actually allowed to vote or take sides in a debate, thus ensuring his status as an independent arbiter.
The Redguard family is one of the ruling Eladrin lines. They value the positive attributes of humanity, and thus the line includes a significant number of ‘half-breeds’. They have a tradition of being mediators in conflict, and the patriarch of the Redguards was the Chairman of the Citadel Council up until MR 752, when he was accused of having instigated conflict in Dendra and Perinia.
Aiden Redguard is a scion of this family.
