The Obsidian Crown
Daniel's uncle, a bard and a storyteller
Stefano is an old bard and storyteller. He the type to always make grand claims and drop the names of famous people he’d met during his travels or fought in battles with. Stefano presents the face of the merry clown but, when Daniel was just a boy he witnessed just how dangerous his uncle really was. While his father was on campaign a few weeks after his mother’s death his uncle visited, he was intoxicated and spouting nonsense. The house servant rang for the guard who came directly. Daniel watched in awe as Stefano single handedly took apart four armed and armored men as if they were children, all while inebriated. There is much more to uncle Stefano than there appears.
