Curse of the Crimson Throne
Marcus Thelassinus Endrin
Commandant of the Sable Company
Unlike the field marshal of the Korvosan Guard, Commandant Marcus Endrin does not report directly to the Monarch, but rather to the seneschal of Castle Korvosa, Neolandus Kalepopolis. This arrangement gives the company’s commandant freedom to act on behalf of the city against a tyrannical ruler, but it potentially puts him at odds with the powerful field marshal of the Korvosan Guard. By charter amendment, in order to maintain this balance of power, the commandant must be at least three generations removed from a common ancestor of the city’s leader.
The current leader of the Sable Company, Commandant Marcus Thalassinus Endrin, is first in line to become the new Seneschal of Castle Korvosa, should Neolandus Kalepopolis retire or die. Neolandus unfortunately went missing during the riots following King Eodred’s death, and is presumed dead.
The heroes inadvertently saved one of Marcus’s nephews in their raid on Gaedren Lamm’s fishery. It was unknown where the boy had gone, or something may have actually happened to Lamm before now. Marcus is therefore personally grateful to our heroes.
