Patriarch Shelane Halaran
Sherlane Halaran (Male Thyatian Cleric 16)
Title: Baron of Threshold, and Patriarch of Threshold for the Church of Karameikos
AC 938 – Born in Thyatian Empire
AC 970 – Age 32 – Joined Stefan Karameikos in forming Karameikos.

AC 1005 – Age 67 (Clr15)
AC 1010 – Age 72 (Clr16)
Sherlane Halaran was a Patriarch of the church in Thyatis before following Duke Stefan to Karameikos. Halaran was saddled with double duties in Karameikos; he was granted the title of Baron of the Threshold area, and the newly-founded Church of Karameikos named him as Patriarch to the area. But he has executed both his secular and religious duties fairly and well, and is highly-regarded by the people of Threshold.
Halaran’s character is made up of both grandfatherly affection and stern discipline. Behave in a good-natured manner, stay within the laws, and he’s the cheery, soft spoken man liked so well by the people of Threshold. Act in an unbecoming manner – by attacking or insulting someone, breaking the law, or just behaving childishly – and he becomes grim and ominous, eyes flashing anger as he pronounces sentence on the offender.
Halaran is in his early 60s, an aging warrior-cleric who’s still capable of hoisting a mace in the name of righteousness. His hair is snow-white; he goes clean-shaven. His eyes are blue. His most dominant facial characteristic is the prominent, jutting nose which earned him nicknames in his long-gone youth. He wears unpretentious clerical robes and does not wear a baronial coronet.
