Patriarch of House Birlithe.
Lord and Merchant King of House Birlithe. A resident of one of Elftown’s greatest mansions (featuring private lagoon), Valentyr is Patriarch of one of the Five Great Clans. A staunch negotiator and diplomat. Famous for brokering the initial peace between Marienburg and Ulthuan. Lord Birlithe was the first elf to allow human trading interests in Cathay, a market previously monopolised by elves.
Over seven-hundred years old, his family arrived in Marienburg more than two centuries ago, as part of the initial resettling of the High Elves of Ulthuan. The father of Elyred, and some other sons who are far less cool and significant.
