Aladan Voll (Makai Fighter 5)
Title: Ambassador of Minrothad to Karameikos
Source – GAZ1 p48
AC 925 – Born in Minrothad
AC 954 – Age 28 – Serving as a Merchant Officer for Minrothad.
AC 994 – Age 68 – Assigned to Karameikos as Minrothad Ambassador.

Voll spent 40 years as a merchant officer for the Minrothad Guilds, then retired, but ultimately he sought another position to keep him from going mad with boredom. Granted the Ambassadorship to Karameikos six years ago, he has kept relationships cordial and business smooth between his nation and this one.
Voll is a warm and friendly man, but still has the edge that decades of being a ship’s captain will bring. He misses the life of the open sea but knows he’s no longer in condition to handle it. His closest friends in the Karameikos court include young Lord Justin Karameikos and Ambassador Schonberg.
Voll is 5’9″ and 140 lbs., with white hair and close-cropped beard and mustache. His eyes are blue. He wears comfortable robes bearing embroidery of waves and ships and sea-life.
