Baron of Brindonford
While Brindonford has had many barons, the most likely one you’re looking for is Hieronymus Maellyn. Maellyn used to be an adventurer, and a reasonably powerful one at that. His two advisers, Lucius the Wizard and Gerin the Clerk, were his adventuring companions in his younger days. They are probably best known for their slaying of the demon Svardocuilius (Svard-oh-shoe-lee-us). After a heroic battle, Lucius used his impressive arcane power to pull the demon’s still-beating heart out of it’s chest in a fashion that Maellyn still calls “pretty damned awesome”.
Maellyn earned his position through the love of the townsfolk after he saved them from a troublesome enemy. He is beloved by all his people, and they would follow him into the mouth of hell if he asked it of them. Maellyn is kind and generous, and the people of Brindonford live in a period of safety and prosperity rarely seen in its history.
