Judge Embreth Daramid
Judge Daramid lives in a fine townhouse surrounded by art in the center of Lepidstadt. She is well respected for her even temper and fairness. Embreth Daramid is one of the justices of Vieland and a magistrate of Lepidstadt. She is in her sixties, with gray hair pulled back tightly into a bun and icy blue eyes. Judge Daramid is a stern, no-nonsense woman who appears to be all business. Judge Daramid believes there is a cancer in Lepidstadt, a darkness lurking behind the shadow of a scapegoat. For many years the people of Lepidstadt have laid their ills at the door of a creature known as the Beast of Lepidstadt-murders, thefts, and terror have all been attributed to the Beast, but Judge Daramid knows that many stories are exaggerations or simply untrue. She also knows that some people have different stories to tell about the creature- about its kindness and humanity, of how it has rescued loved ones or helped those in distress. Now that the time has arrived for such kindness to be repaid, however, no one dares to step forward and challenge the Beast’s reputation.
