West Marches: The Kingdom of Vahan
Lefaris is one of the members of the King’s council. She wants the kingdom to flourish and the people not fear the wilderness outside. She pushed the council heavily to let her open a guild to attract and coordinate adventurers. She had to pull some string and ask for favors. Some of the council member had to be “persuaded” bit more. This was not to difficult with the information and dirt Valric, her husband, managed to collect.
Some are still trying to thwart her attempts, because in the game of politics it does not matter whether it’s right or wrong. What matters is power. And there are those who see Lefaris as a threat. She knows this, but that does not discourage her from her goals. That is why she has taken the name Hope.
