Korrigan is a first cousin to Duke Stefan – his father and Stefan’s mother (and the mother of Ludwig von Hendriks) were siblings. Alexius, seventh child of his parents and not likely to inherit any large parcel of the Korrigan lands, responded to Stefan’s call for worthy followers. In his years of service with the Duke, he has headed numerous roadbuilding expeditions and proved to be loyal and capable at accomplishing his goals on time and on budget. Stefan made him the administrator of the Duke’s own personal estate, a post Korrigan has held now for over 20 years.
Alexius is a large, merry man who most loves a complicated task well-accomplished. Though trained in the arts of war, he dislikes combat, preferring to handle money, keep records organized, and keep events moving on time. He is a great admirer of good food and wine – they are among his personal weaknesses. Never married, he engages in frequent affairs of the heart with women of the Karameikan court and of high station in Specularum. Because of his good nature, endearing personality, and honest affection for the Traladaran population, he is the only member of the Karameikan royal family genuinely liked by the Traladarans.
Lord Korrigan is tall, 5’3″, and built like a black bear, weighing over 260 pounds. His hair and shaggy beard are brown, his eyes brown and cheerful. He tends to dress in simple trousers and surcoats that look as though they’ve been slept in.

DMing Notes: Lord Alexius is likely to hire characters to go on mapping and exploration expeditions for the Duke. He pays a good wage and expects good work; if the characters perform well, he’s likely to hire them again and again, and eventually to commend them to the Duke as adventurers who can get the job done.
