A Dark Moon Rising
High Deacon Gareth Palgraine
Conclave Member, High Priest of Eshand in Thesca
Deacon Palgraine commands the Temple of Eshand in Thesca, which is the dominant church in Ankarrah. The High Deacon of Eshand is another virtual fixture among the ranks of the Conclave, whoever he may currently be. While he is respected for his command of the law-—a natural field of study for a priest of the god of justice and civilization—his tendency to pontificate on minutiae and an air of pomposity mean that he is not altogether popular. At 46, he is a somewhat short human with a balding pate of gray hair and a spare frame. Which makes his rich, deep voice, trained to fill a crowded temple, all the more surprising.
