Constable of Upper Teigh
About Sir Richard: Richard’s duties far exceed his relatively humble title. He acts as a de facto leader of Upper Teigh‘s government. Richard gets his orders from the Duke but makes most actual decisions regarding administration of the Vale’s resources. The village headmen meet with Richard alone nine times out of ten, and even when Duke Controy is present he rarely has anything to add to the conversation. Richard has risen admirably to the task and realistically is the one who keeps everything running smoothly. He is respected by the people, not least because, while born a commoner, he was granted a Knighthood for valorous deeds on the field of battle, and is now a minor noble. Richard has his own small manor outside of Tinderbox. Richard’s right-hand man is Edgar, a sour-faced but effective helper who serves as the head of the town watch. Richard can usually be found in his office at the guard barracks in Tinderbox.
