Cyriel Endelkar – Human, Lunar citizen, Priest of Etyries
Cyriel is rich, connected, greedy, a close friend of King Glyptus, occasional lover of the queen and probably the richest man in Balazar.
A lean and charismatic man in his late forties, with salt and pepper hair and beard. Has a very well defined and proper posture and moves gracefully. His manners are exquisite, his accent refined , his discourse educated and this is all but wasted on most people in Balazar.
His manner is brusque with servants menials and lower spending clients but will turn the charm on with potential clients he perceives are willing to spend a considerable amount.
He hails from from Mrins Cross and has good connections in the Lunar Provincial army supply core which got him this lucrative contract to supply the Elkoi garrison.
Highly organised efficient and effective businessman. With a controlling nature. His motivation is to always continually gain more control of the environment round him. Cyriel can suffer from avarice and will spend huge amounts of resources to obtain rare and unusual items which catch his eye.
Cyriel has been working with Halycon and Marusa to destabilise non-lunar Balazar, with an eye to creating inroads into new markets and to turn a profit. He sees the Balazaring Orlanthi as a specific threat to the long term profitability of his business dealings, and will pay handsomely for useful information he could use against them. He would pay more for their deaths.

Jasela Ca Tibera, Cryiel’s Woman,Human, Initiate of the Seven Mothers
Jasela was once the daughter of a Carmarthen petty noble family, sold into slavery after father rebelled against his Lord. She was bought by Cyril three season ago for the whorehouse, but never made it there.
A lithe and pretty girl, who knows that her position is dependent upon her looks. She takes great care to ensure she is always well presented and goes to considerable length to avoid any manual work
She seems to enjoy her status and position as Cyriel’s woman. But has an odd love hate relationship with him. She is free to go if she wishes, but chooses not to a she is scared of life on her own. She is however bitter about her life story and blames Cyriel for his part in it. She is possessive of him and knows about his illicit affairs with the Queen.
Jasela is feisty, strong willed but lacking friends. She had been drawn towards Marusa’s worship of Jackeel the witch, but the queens interest stops her from joining the convern.
She is looking for a source of power and validation in her life. She is alo looking to maintain her relative privilege and get out Elkoi if she can. Has no loyalty to Cyriel and will ditch him if a better offer comes along.
