Adventures in Stormreach
Storm Lord Varen Lassite
Storm Lord of Cross and the Marketplace
Varen Lassite oversees commerce and diplomacy in the city of Stormreach. As such, he is usually the first to treat with foreign dignitaries and entertain or discuss matters of foreign policy with them and the other Storm Lords. Of all the Storm Lords, Lord Varen is the only one who is beloved by his subjects. He has a reputation for generosity, and though he cannot always supply justice, he will buy a drink for anyone who suffers misfortune in the Marketplace. He is the epitome of the dashing swashbuckler—romantic, witty, with a fine eye for beauty and an appreciation for skilled swordplay. Beyond this, he is a clever and careful negotiator, capable of manipulating stronger enemies into battling one another.
