The balanced one
Stefan is the most professional of the foremen. While not as friendly with his men as Victor, he works closely with them and is more understanding than Axel and Rignald. He expects hard work and dedication from them, however, and is not afraid to correct them when they are being unsafe – he is aware of how dangerous a mine can be. He has been in the Miner’s Guild the longest out of anyone in Roufil and has hit the slightly unusual position of being stuck in the middle. Normally in Uldholm, one is either rising or falling in Guild status – Uldish culture has no room for those who get so far and then stay there. However, Stefan is one of those exceptions who remains too good at his job to be usurped by an ambitious youngster, and yet possesses no outstanding talent to qualify as a Master.
