The current ambassador from Thyatis is Cornel Osteric, a diplomat of many years’ experience appointed to this court eight years ago.
Osteric is a clever, cold man with a ruthless streak and a tireless nature. His duty is to keep continual pressure on the Duke to grant Thyatis superior trade terms over Ierendi and Minrothad, and to keep an eye on events in the Grand Duchy and regularly report them to the Emperor of Thyatis. Though a married man with children and grandchildren, Osteric has left his family back in Thyatis and here fancies himself quite a ladies’ man.
Osteric is in his mid-40s and in excellent shape. He has black hair and blue eyes and wears expensive clothing that is expertly tailored for him.

DMing Notes: Osteric is the man the characters may accidentally bump into or spill a drink upon, and who ever after will cause them inconvenience wherever possible. On occasion, he may hire thugs to beat them in the streets, or try to poison the Duke’s mind against them (if they’re already known in court), or try to seduce their loved ones or family members (then abandon them). He would not contract to murder them or tell a lie that can be disproven. Osteric is not a major villain – he exists only to make life harder for everybody. If the characters escalate the hostilities – for instance, trying to kill him (or succeeding), they’ll be marked as criminals if the facts become known. If, instead, they fight Osteric at his own game, using innuendo and political pressure to keep him at bay, they’ll have an interesting antagonist in court for quite some time. Eventually, if they are as dogged and clever as he is, they’ll earn his respect and he will cease hostilities.
