Son of the Duke who was driven out of Skaemut by the Tiger Rebellion
Skaemut the elder was the nefarious lord who ruled the mountainous duchy to the north of Arcon. The present Duke Skaemut is his son.
Duke Skaemut has used treachery and assassination in the past to get his way in the politics of King Yon’s court. His goal is to convince the King to send his army north and retake the province from the rebellious monks. It has proven difficult for him to motivate an attack on a religious order even though they are publicly viewed as traitors.
He sees the party and their rising influence as a threat to his selfish goals.
