HEROES OF IMPILTUR
Captain Aric Kern
Leader of a unit of knights of the Order of the Golden Cup. He was present the night that the party first met the Broken One Monks. Later, the characters found out that his unit had uncharacteristically defied orders and assaulted the city of Gray Haven when it had been besieged by the armies of Impiltur. Kern and the entire order of knights were killed by the city’s defenses. A powerful beam of light was later emitted from the Captain’s shield that illuminated the entire Starlight Citadel. The light seemed to somehow mesmerize the Citadel’s occupants into becoming agents of Malrite.
