The Treachery of Thronehold
Ferryman-smuggler working on behalf of the Thirteenth
Fisherman from the island of Thronehold, Joel Burmont had the good fortune to be relatively spared by the atrocities of the Last War, Thronehold remaining an unofficial neutral zone during the whole century of violence. His hardships began with the destruction of Cyre on the Day of Mourning. Perahps due to the Dead-Gray Mist, the fish from the Cyre and Brey Rivers began to dry out, and competition with the hundreds of newcomers in the last moments of the war meant he could barely gather enough to ensure his subsitance. Unwilling to quit his hometown, he had no choice but to ally with one of the more or less shady organizations operating from Throneport, and ended up contracting a permanent alliance with the forces of the Thirteenth. Ever since, he’s been using his small fishing boat to ferry members of the group across the Scions Sound, as well as doing no small amount of smuggling between the surrounding nations of Thrane and Karrnath.
