The Village Elder
Verol has the appearance of a well groomed aristocrat, even though that concept hardly exists in your world. He is clearly mature, though he hardly looks as old as rumors suggest. He is known to stand tall and carry himself with the dignity of a leader. In the past few months however this image has waned. lately he looks more tired, both physically and mentally. His voice has become soft, even raspy.
Verol is head and founder of the western village which our adventurers now call home. He is a venerable elf, rumored to be more than 300 years old. His authority is unquestioned, though he often lets Kromdyke take care of military matters. The elder has multiple wives, each a generation apart in order to spread out his bloodline and make his village strong. He has no idea that his youngest son has been replaced by a changeling.
