The Unexpected Heir
Sir Edgar Strachan was a minor nobleman from a wealthy family in Lethbrand. He was one of the financiers of Lord Cormac Kaspen's expedition to Carthe to found Kaspen, and served as its first steward until his death. His elder brother Sir Sebastian Strachan survives him and rules over a modest fief in the Western Foothills of Kaspen. Sir Edgar's own children all predeceased him due to war or disease, but two grandchildren survive and live with Sir Sebastian's family.
