Lheren Hochstib is the bastard son of Baron Lerep Hochstib.


You see Lord Lheren Hochstib the Second Watcher of the Church of Koar.
He appears to be a Human.
He is average height and appears to be in the prime of life.  He has almond-shaped slate grey eyes and tanned skin.  He has shoulder-length, thick light brown hair with a black streak running through it.  He has an angular face, a straight nose and dimpled cheeks.
He is in good shape.
He is wearing a crystal amulet, a heavy black mantle lined with white silk, a polished white ora shield, a silver-tooled black leather satchel, a crisp white linen surcoat emblazoned with a golden crown, a point-sleeved padded black wool gambeson, an intricately carved silver scabbard inlaid with gleaming topaz, and a pair of black leather boots.


As a boy, Lheren was almost drowned by his father, but his aunt Delphinuria insisted he instead be sent off to the Church of Koar, after giving up any claim to family power and the throne of Jantalar. Moving up within the Church, Lheren became an instructor at an academy in Nydds, teaching on religious and imperial law and eventually becoming a Second Watcher of the Church of Koar, where he meted out justice in the name of the Church.

Lheren has expressed his lifelong desire to beak out from the dark shadow of his father's tainted legacy. He has been involved in many things over the last two years, from the Trial of Davard, to investigations into corruption among the Noble Council of Talador. Lheren led a mass commune of members of both Liabo and Lornon, seeking Koar's aid in the battle against Althedeus, to which the Arkati answered by revealing a new magic spell to their faithful cleric. He is a sensible and good man, who represents the merciful side of Koar.
