Former Head of Guard for Havenstone
Gaston Couls led the Havenstone town guard until he and most of the guard mysteriously left on a ‘mission’ out of town, without explanation to anyone. He was replaced a number of months later when the Ember Isles found out and sent Zirka Steinhart to take over the roll and try and rebuild the guard.
In the meantime, the STC took over most of the security needs of the city, with only a handful of (mostly young) guards forming the ‘Havenstone guard’ proper.
What happened to Couls?
It took several events to figure out his fate.
