Known Information

Background

Étienne is heir to the Baronnie de Berck on the north coast of Azzalle.

They are an old house and the blood of Azza is said still to run in their veins, but time and fortune have eroded their importance rather and while they are comfortable, an advantageous match or preferably several such would do much for the dignity of the house, at least in the minds of Etienne's formidable grandmother, Agnès (a poor relation to house Toluard), his mother Isabeau (who was a Baphinol), and his host of aunts.

Alas, Étienne, while martial enough in terms of training is rather more enamored of the sea than is ideal. He has taken of late to slipping away to a certain tavern by the docks in which seafaring gentlemen with interests not strictly legal are apt to congregate. In fact, Etienne D'Arguil consorts with smugglers, likely as much for the tales of adventure and the excitement of it as for more material reasons. He has lent a hand here and there for the hiding of cargo and stood the occasional look-out. This pleases neither the Dowager Baroness, nor his parents. Really, the boy is not even close to being ready to take on the responsibilities of an heir, being too dreamy and mischievous by half.

What is needed is some proper direction and a distance from troublesome acquaintances. The hope is that sending him far away with a strict allowance (enough to uphold an heir's dignity without leaving enough extra for excesses) will get him away from less wholesome influences — and that a sojourn in Marsilikos might lend him a bit of much-needed polish. His mother originally hailing from Eisande, there is hope he might make use of some of her ties to the region in getting on there.
