Background

Stephos DeArchon was appointed to the town council in 5112. Stephos and his half-elven wife moved to Wehnimer’s years ago after they fled the imperial port of Idolone due to strong anti-human sentiments against the wealthy merchant and his half-elven bride. Stephos has since earned many friends among the local merchants, who elected him to represent them on the town council.

His wife Alendrial DeArchon was believed to have slept with Inquisitor Rinhale Hurrst to protect her husband. When he was murdered the adventurers of Wehnimer's Landing protected her. As Stephos slipped into stranger behavior, at one point pardoning MadMountain and others who had boasted of killing Earl Kestrel with Nysina, he tried to vanish after being implicated as the weapon supplier for the Krolvin attacking the Empire. He was apprehended by the town guard, and kept in custody by the Silver Gryphons in their Holding. Weeks later, Earl Jovery dispatched Sir Thadston Andrews to go to Wehnimer's Landing and transport the prisoner back to imperial lands to face trial. The heroes unknowingly handed over Stephos to an imposter, likely members of the Brotherhood of Rooks, pretending to be Sir Thadston and Hendoran soldiers. The imposters left Wehnimer's Landing with Stephos in tow. Days later, the real Sir Thadston showed up with his men, claiming to have been waylayed on the road by bandits. When the duplicity of the situation was soon discovered, Sir Thadston and his men rode off at once to try to recapture Stephos, but were unsuccessful.

Stephos was most recently spotted in the Elven Nations, and rumors suggest he might have returned for a brief time to Wehnimer's Landing, but no evidence has been found of that. His whereabouts remain unknown.
