The Illuminated Ones
Corvis City Watch Commander
Commander Helstrom is known throughout Corvis as a respected leader and hard-nosed lawman. After many stellar years in the Cygnaran army, Helstrom retired to Corvis and joined the city watch. Just like in his tenure with the army, Helstrom quickly made a name for himself with his dutiful service and forthright manner. His loyalty and secret links to King Leto proved invaluable in Corvis’ resistance of Vinter the Elder’s maneuverings. Some wonder if he will be recalled to military duty, but so far his services have been required to keep order in the city. The watch has been pushed beyond endurance by the flood of refugees and other traffic, and it is said Helstrom is getting little sleep. Relations have also been strained between Commander Helstrom and the recently posted Colonel Brocker, ranking officer of the new army garrison. Helstrom considers Brocker a naïve young bureaucrat with too little field experience for such an important post.
