Bishop, Jones (Dead)
(3) A stuttering researcher for the Libriohenaeum who works in the catalogues at the Temple of Heironeous in Riot's Gate. This aged, human scholar is held in high esteem by those involved in arcane research. His shy nature around strangers is related to his jarring studder. It is somewhat common knowledge among his peers that Bishop was once an amateur adventurer in his younger days, in search of rare lore and artifacts. At the age of 35, he was a seasoned traveller and adventurer with a solid sense of humour and significant wealth and completed research. During the Wars of Independence, he put his personal ventures aside to support the emerging Federation. He was a part of a small team that sought a wicked noble who had abandoned his retreating army near Eoport. The nobleman fled into a cellar and magically ambushed Bishop and his party with a summoned Demon. This demon killed all of Bishop's companions and only with the use of a powerful magic device did Bishop defeat it and survive. While he did capture this "nobleman" alive, Bishop's health was never the same and his voice became broken and disordered ever after. He never did return to field work but instead joined the Libriohenaeum and has been committed to an austere life of learned scholarship for the last 23 years. He was severely wounded during the disaster that befell the Order of Heironeous during the Eye of Independence Eclipse. He later died.

Formerly a janissary of the armies of the Monotheocrate Order, fewer still know how he came to be in the Mazari, nor how he came to the worship of Heironeous. What is known, is that during the Wars of Independence, he rallied slave and freemen, elves and half elves, even half-orcs to Heironeous's battle standard. Though he is elderly, he still cuts a formidable figure even when he is not wearing the armour of his station. In Riot's Gate, he has grown more weary of politics than he ever was of war. He died during the Doom's Eye Eclipse, in the ruins Axes Bithtat.
Captain of the Eastern District Watch (SG-2) The Captain of the Watch for the Steel Ward, the Craftsman's Quarter and Fortress Hill in Riot's Gate is a tough old pug of a human.

Gorm, Sirol (SG-B) A vicious Trudorean Noble who led the last of the forces of Old Terranse against the newly formed Sunterranse Federatiuon for three years following Independence from his hideout in the Wasted Sea. He was defeated by the forces of Heironeous our of the Forward Advance. His blue tower shield was used as the placard upon which the principles of the order that would become the Keepers were first inscribed. He has languished in a prison in Riot's Gate for the past 17 years.
(2) A large Half-Orc discovered to be the bodyguard of Tallim Nuvam. He is unusually calm and self-possessed for his race, and given the state in which he was found when the party rescued him from Gluttony Cultists in the sewers beneath Riot's Gate. Domaldi has noted that he displays an obvious intelligence and wit.Grist stuck out from the other captives mostly for his size, but also for the fact that he moved like a person who could take care of himself, despite the beatings it looked as if he had endured.

The Viper's Watch kidnapped and sold his daughter Mei Mei to Gluttony cultists when he was unable to pay their exorbitant protection fees. He bargained with the characters to find her in exchange for information about a mysterious tapestry Thalazzar had seen in his shop.

She doesn't drop her facade while she works and she never give up any details about her life, let alone her background, but she's always got a smile and a wink.
Kulakk the Quartermaster (2) The Quartemaster in charge of supplies in at the Temple of Heironeous in Riot's Gate. He supplied the party with equipment to pursue the Glutonny Cultists in the sewers. After the death of Yeoman Canchari and many other ranking priests during the disaster that befell the Order of Heironeous during the Doome's Eye Eclipse, and given that much of the rest of the Order was at the front lines in the battle with the invading Orcish Horde, Kulakk is the ranking High Commander in Riot's Gate.

Leader of the Gluttony Cult (SG-2) The Cleric who led the Vile Gluttony Cult that practiced its foul rites in the sewers beneath Riot's Gate escaped the destruction the party brought unto the rest of his cell. He remains at large. The following description was overheard one night in the Bell & Dragon: I remember going into the room full of freaks. The leader stood out, due to him not wearing a mask that forced his mouth open. Instinct took over, and as I sighted down my x-bow, I saw the leader's bloodshot eyes with their yellow irises. A true whacko if I ever saw one! My xbow bolt fired off and nailed him just below the heart (I think). I don't think it sunk in too well, but he sure yelled hard! That will definitely leave a scar! His full leather garb sure wasn't designed very good against xbow bolts. Next thing I know, the freak leader is making a getaway, flashing his long grey cloak to disappear in conjured darkness. (Frankie)
Louie, Sgt. (SG-2) The Orcish desk Sergaent of the Steel Ward Watch in Riot's Gate. He is overworked, has little patience, no sense of humour and you are geting on his last nerve. Doesn't seem to like Goblins too much, or anyone else for that matter.

Mei Mei (SG-1) A seven year old Hankuan girl kidnapped.

Description: Phillip is a goblin citizen with green skin, long thin ears, and a particularly short nose for a goblin. He is found of wearing hats and wears a ten-bone bracelet. He is suspected of leading the Viper's Watch and working with the Dripping Blade. (Thalazzar - Wanted Poster)
Plake (SG-B) Affable, overweight Half-Elven owner of The Bell & Dragon, an Inn in Riot's Gate. He is originally from the town of Bellhold, but he has been in Riot's Gate about 2 years, and has put down roots. He tells tall tales and brags, but he is good natured.

He was sentenced for his role in kidnapping a Hankuan merchant's young daughter and selling her to Gluttony cultists in Riot's Gate.
Tarnin, Barris (SG-B-Domaldi) A Windhome Elven Praetorian, and old friend of Pilus Justinian from the Independence wars. He is a Fellow of the Order of Heironeous - an admirer though not an adherent. He divides his time between the Windhome Plains and Riot's Gate. He has been involved in politics, but his influence is fading. He is a Federation Loyalist whose strong admonishment of Elven Nationalists has lately won him few friends amongst his own race.
Tufimatix (SG-B-Frankie) Frankie's uncle, her mother's second second brother, is a great Gnomish lawyer from Claxxon. He practices law in Riot's Gate and occaisionally writes editorials for The Portcullis regading the goings on in the chambers of government. As a somewhat less old man, he played a major role in writing the laws of the Sunterranse Federation.

Claimers of the Maddock

(SG-B-Arek) a group of dwarves of noble descent, fiercely loyal to the person of the Maddock and what he represents to Dwavres more than they are loyal to what he represents to the Federation. The Claimers frequently venture in the underground sections of Axes Bithat to reclaim part of the lost city for the greater glory of the Maddock. The Claimers are comprised only of the noble offspring of the clans surrounding Axes Bithat / Riot's Gate. It is an elite guard, dedicated to bringing back the greater glory of the ancient dwarvish kingdoms. Graduated Claimers are all trusted members of the clans surrounding Axes Bithtat and de facto Wardens of the Watch in Riot's Gate. They are entrusted with many secrets of the Undercity and the Dwarven race. The section of Axes Bithtat that was opened up after the First Great Seal of the Stone Druids had been opened, had been abandoned for years - its hallowed halls emptied of Dwarves and infested with creatures of the Underdark! Besides that, the Stone Druids left traps everywhere during their retreat. Claimers require a great deal of training to ensure they die in battle, not at the hands of some diabolical device. Most serious, however, is the next Great Seal! No one had been in any hurry to break that one - and its warnings were taken much more seriously... at least for a while. In an apparent act of betrayal that few understand, but regardless know as the Claimer Conspiracy, the Claimers of the Maddock

Libriohenaeum (SG-B) A solemn secular order of researchers, librarians and archaeologists that adheres striuctly to a code of non-interference and neutrality to all politics but that which affects or threatens their collections.

When the Dragon Fleet returned to Hankuo, amongst the emissaries was a collection of texts and a score of researchers from the Libriohenaeum. (Touched by Gods. Penumbra 2001. p. 5)
