The Fall of Sarpedon
Captain of Dark Rapids Town Guard
Pallidar summoned the PCs to help him stop the river pirates before they eventually hijacked all the supplies coming into Dark Rapids, leaving the population to starve. When the party disappeared into Lord Blackthorne’s dungeon after a diplomatic faux pas, Pallidar was forced to resort to other means in his attempt to solve the problem.
While having the virtue of being an honest and dedicated civil servant, he is clearly unsuited for the position he holds and is able to maintain little if any control over the soldiers under his command. His excitable personality only increases the tension of those he works with.
At the battle of Dark Rapids, Pallidar was mortally wounded in combat against the Orc horde, his fall finally giving him the valiant reputation that sought but could never achieve during his lifetime.
