Bio:

Ernest Padraig, the Lord of Winterhaven, is descended from the noble family that ruled the area under edict of the old empire. Folks around Winterhaven were happy with Lord Padraig’s father’s authority, and they have found answering to the rules of the new lord no more arduous. On the other hand, Padraig doesn’t have absolute power. For instance, he was unable to raise a force from among the villagers to deal with the kobold problem on the road.

The party first encountered him the morning after their arrival in the village at a meeting they sought regarding the brigands. He hired them to find the creatures’ lair and eliminate whatever was leading them, offering to pay them for this service.
