The Orphans of Cathorna
Leader of the coal miners
The elected manager of the anthracite mining collective, 38 year old Edhellen appears to have a touch of elf in his blood some distance back. He joined the village twenty years ago as a miner and gained popularity as a fair and hardworking man. He gets good prices for the coal and does not play favourites with the other miners, although he is often accused by others of treating the entire village as simply life support for the coal mine. He occasionally gets into disputes with the dwarves over prices and quality, sometimes requiring mediation by Palanto. Despite his mine-hardened muscles, he is near-useless in a fight, seemingly unable to swing a weapon at another living being. This unwillingness to fight has constantly threatened his position on the council, only the size of the mining clique returning him each election.
