Seven Kingdoms: Seowyn's Crossing
Gyzzel Markrand a Gnome who is the shire reeve of Silver Falls. He serves Baron Kadran Greenfields as his man. He was also man to Kadran’s older brother, Sardan. Sardan was not as good a ruler as Kadran and let his corrupt shire reeve get wealthy off of the taxes of the lands he patrolled. Gyzzel is still clinging to his ways, at least long enough to garner enough money to seek a noble office from the King of Summerlund.
Gyzzel employs a group of toughs referred to as the Reevesmen. These folk strong-arm townsfolk into paying, even when they cannot afford it. Gyzzel has an excellent knowledge of even the most obscure laws and fines, and he uses them to eke coins from the locals. He wears a pointed, furred cap and elegant clothing, riding on a horse that’s much too big for him.
