House Bleigh is the second oldest house in Ferryport after House Bale. They have long traded in goods with the far north, with strong ties to the Mideon Kingdom. House Bleigh is headed by Vitus Bleigh, whose family comes from old money. He is quite beside himself at the loss of Jaeldor’s Pride, perhaps even more so than the loss of his nephew Timoth, as it is one of the finest ships on the Aerlon. He purchased the ship from a retiring merchant in Jaeldor, who had no heir.
Aldaria Toff is the high administrator and accountant for the Merchant Guild. She has authority to interview prospective mercenaries or adventurers who respond to their offer.
Toff is a middle-aged woman with brown skin, dark hair and even darker eyes. She wears a dress that looks like it is formed of one continuous colorful bolt of cloth, wound around her body. If stats are needed, use ”Townsperson – Human Commoner 2” listed in the NPC Gallery.
Toff moved here from the East decades ago and has earned her respected position as high administrator and accountant for the Ferryport Merchant Guild, composed of the nine major merchant houses.
Toff is a very lawful individual. Though she has not learned of Glycyn’s involvement in the ship disappearances, if she hears of it, she will not hesitate to report him to the guild. The well being of the guild as a whole is her main concern, and she will not turn a blind eye to unlawful activity by any guild members or houses. That being said, she will generally recommend that matters be taken care of internally, rather than involve the law. To her, guild law is a higher law than that of whatever ruler may be sitting on a throne at any given time.
