Realms of Myth
Sir Edgar, Earl Lindsey
Sir Edgar, Earl Lindsey. He holds some 30 lordships scattered over 4 shires. The seat of his honor (primary castle) is called Daldrin Tor, in Lundeinshire, to the southwest of the city and shire of Fallond.
The Earl is the fifth of his father’s five children. He has three older sisters, Andra (37), Meghan (32) and Honoria (31). His elder brother Edmund, the previous earl, died last year. His sisters are devoted to him, except Honoria, who seems rather reserved where Edgar is concerned. Edgar’s wife’s name is Allison. They have no children as yet, after 4 years of marriage.
Criminal charges fabricated by an avaricious neighboring lord, Sir Arnold Penwyth, earl of Maralad ( to the west), the same one that destroyed “Lucian’s” family, have been brought against Edgar over the breakdown in marriage negotiations concerning Lady Andra.
This is one of the reasons Lucian is being sheltered. Edgar will dutifully offer his troops to Marchioness Lucinda of the Low Marches when she comes to sort the situation out.
Edgar is himself only 23 years old, thrust into the lordship at the sudden death last year of Edmund, who was only 28. Edgar suspects foul play in that death but there simply is no evidence. Having a new and essentially untried lord in control of the feof makes for a weaker foe for Earl Maralad, however, so he does have his suspicions. Edmund would have been a very strong and able lord. Edgar is essentially untried, and perhaps a bit over-fond of the hunt over his lordly duties.
