Darkness over Daggerford
Former adventurer and Purple Dragon Knight
Isteval is slender and tawny-skinned with dark brown hair salted with gray. He often still wears the heavy plate armor of a knight, though his left leg is braced and he carries a walking stick as well as his greatsword.
Isteval is a former adventurer and Purple Dragon Knight of far-off Cormyr, living out his retirement in Daggerford. Believing that the shining kingdom of Cormyr was a lighthouse to the world, a shining example of everything that a nation should be, he fought boldly against the forces of chaos and evil wherever they threatened the stability of his home realm.
In a fateful battle against an ancient green dragon, Isteval suffered a grievous wound to his leg that has never fully healed. His wounded leg means that Isteval’s greatest quests now lie behind him, but he has never lost his vision of a shining Cormyr that should be, a beacon and bastion against encroaching darkness.
Though he is no longer able to fight as he did in his youth, Isteval seeks to bring together a new, great company of brave souls to carry on his legacy, to preserve his vision for future generations. Though many trials yet lie ahead, he is convinced that at the end of his journey is a far fairer place.
