Baron Silas

Personality Edit

The baron is quite lacking in academic and martial disciplines. His only redeeming point is his generosity and eagerness to help to others.

Appearance Edit

Baron Silas wore the golden-threaded extravagant plate armor that Lorist had gifted him when they met. The insignia of Baron Silas's family was engraved upon it: a rhombus-shaped icon of a gemstone could be seen in the center of the armor.

Half a year after he met Lorist, the baron had gotten a little fatter: originally, the plate armor was a little too big for the baron. However, some fatty meat could be seen protruding from the opening at his waist.

Background Edit

Back when he was studying at the imperial capital, he and his friends would leave the academy after class and mess around all over the place to hook up with beauties.

Story Edit

Viscount Darwof sent his men to the Baron’s dominion to demand him to share half of the transport fee for the ferries to him and threatened that he would seal off the banks from the other side if he didn't. However, the viscount only occupied half the area of the opposite bank and the baron could easily move his port to another spot. Naturally, he refused his demand and changed where his ferries docked. It would only take the passengers a little more time to reach the main road. After noticing the baron ignored his demands, the viscount commissioned for someone to build him two new boats to set up a new ferry port to compete with the baron’s business. However, when the ships were complete, he realized that more than 50 kilometers along the western bank of the river was within the baron’s dominion and he had no place to dock his ferries. In the end, he sent someone to negotiate for him to have a share in the profits of the dock in exchange for investing the two ferries with him. Even so, the baron didn't give him the slightest damn and in the end, he had no choice but to gift the ferries to him so that he would move the port back to the original location. That way, he can also profit a little from collecting a toll at his newly-formed customs point. 

Hearing his plight, he decided to accept his ferries and move his port back to the old spot. However, many merchant convoys came to complain to him that the viscount was getting more overboard with the toll. The baron had long worried about something like that happening as it would deter merchants from using my ferry service. Just as I was about to send someone to warn them, Lorist came over and taught them a lesson. 

The baron didn't allow the soldiers of the Norton Family to build the floating bridges and said that a hundred kilometers within the range of the crossing point was his territory and that we had to pay if we wanted to cross the river. Angered, Yuriy and Loze hung him up right away and occupied his bastide. Since Baron Silas was considered to be a subordinate of Duke Madras, he was considered to be an enemy and Yuriy and Loze didn't have the slightest reservation about sending him to the gallows.  

Lorist had him taken down from there and buried. Since they knew each other, it wouldn't be right to leave him hanging so unsightly like that.
