This Present Darkness
Bann Daran Lothair
Daran is a Bann under Arl Ethril. He is a hard man who believes in preparing for the grim realities of the world and does not tolerate the whimsical. He is also a very devout andrastian. He follows the Chantry’s edicts above all else. To his eldest son, Rayland he was most harsh. Rayland now believes he was preparing him to eventually inherit his father’s estate and title. Rayland was devastated by how easily his father sent him away to the Circle without any hesitation. Rayland has had no correspondence with his father but he is sure his father is the reason for him being placed in Arl Ethril’s service.
