Valen Karameikos (Kerendan Rogue 3)
Source – GAZ1 p43
AC 986 – Born to Stefan and Olivia Karameikos in Specularum, Karameikos
AC 1000 – Age 14 (T1) Had his Shearing Ceremony.

AC 1010 – Age 24 (Rog3)
Valen, third child of Stefan and Olivia, was born in 986. He grew up happily absorbing all his mother had to teach him, and has denied her nothing – except recently, when he has insisted that he be Sheared and spend time in the “real world” as his siblings did.
Valen is a clever and inquisitive young man, always prying into others’ affairs, learning how things work and learning what he can get away with. Though he loves both his gruff, good-natured father and quick-witted mother, he is looking forward to a couple of years being Sheared and away from his family – he’s anxious to learn about the world through his own experiences.
Valen is a dark-haired young man of 14; he wears a perpetual expression of bright-eyed curiosity and enthusiasm. He generally wears simple but costly clothing.

DMing Notes: For the next several years, as soon as Valen is Sheared and leaves, there will be a quiet and systematic manhunt for him – made by Duchess Olivia, by Baron von Hendriks, by the Iron Ring slaving organization, by the Veiled Society criminal organization, and by others who want to keep an eye on him or kidnap him. The characters can stumble across and thwart several of these plots (or, if they’re Chaotic, participate in them).
