Raised under strict tutleage from his father, mother, and seneschal. Childress has been groomed from an early age to take over House Van Lieber. In recent years he has taken over the family's interests in the kingdom's capital of Alluria. Known as a rising star in court, it's only his repuration as an avid upholder of the law that has quelled rumors of participation in illegal activities due to his close relationship with the infamou Mugambi Merchant Guild. In truth, he is in love with Chinwe Mugambi, the owner's wife, and she is equally passionate about him. It's a dangerous affair with little chance of happy ending, particularly given Childress's betrothal to Ella Tiberius.
