Stefan Teague, Adjunct of the Third Estate
Despite the sound of the title, the Third Estate of the Tetracameral Parliament of Fairhaven holds the most power, consisting of wealthy merchants, most of whom lack noble title. The First Estate, comprised of the hereditary nobility, runs a poor second in power and influence. The Lord Mayor himself, Chief Magistrate of Fairhaven, is of the Third Estate. The Duchy of Fennick is unusual in Elanthor. Perhaps it is because the King himself resides nearby, but the nobility is not the most important governing body on a local level.
Adjunct Stefan Teague, widower, father of three, is a career politician. Wise investments and an excellent education have allowed him to rise in social standing. Formerly Adjunct of the Fourth Estate, the terrae filius or common people, his success in financial dealings allowed him the opportunity to buy in to an office in the Third, where he thought he would be able to better advance his conservative but well-meaning viewpoints.
Born the only son of middle class parents, he is a proponent of public works, blue laws, and legislation protecting the lower classes from victimization by the wealthy. He currently resides in High Rathmead.
The Union of Bards and Entertainers runs the vast majority of prostitution in the city; they run a tight ship and keep their girls safe and healthy in brothels confined to the red light portion of the theater district. Non-unionized operations are oppressed with a firm hand; however, while the Union's grip is strong they have a short reach. Your past contact with the guild is Dana Delureux, a Madame at Chateaus Bellisonte.
