Kuligar Gardane was the would-be Baron of the newly-independent Talador. In 5114, he was killed in a riding accident after being thrown from his horse.
You see Lordship Kuligar Gardane the Potentate of Talador. He appears to be a Human. He is average height and appears to be past his prime. He has almond-shaped willow green eyes and fair skin. He has chin-length, silken tawny brown hair. He has a rotund face, a plump nose and a wide forehead. He is in good shape. He is holding a mug of chilled silver ale in his right hand. He is wearing a heavy black fur-lined greatcloak, a silver-laced black leather belt, a fur-trimmed brown leather doublet, a wide platinum engagement band set with a smooth ruby stone, a hammered signet ring stamped with the crest of Talador, an onyx-inlaid ceremonial scabbard, a pair of silver-striped black doeskin trousers, and some elegant brown knee-high boots.
During his coronation in Talador in 5115, Baron Kuligar was seemingly assassinated by Madelyne Cross. In reality, Kuligar had died many months prior in a riding accident. The accident was witnessed by Wehnimer's Landing town councilman Deylan. Apparently a shapeshifter, Deylan used the Baron's death as an opportunity for espionage. It was Deylan who ultimately died at the hands of the urnon golem, Madelyne Cross.
