Some of the People of Amber’s Descriptions


Ban Reeth True

BanReethTrue.jpg

This strange woman is an archetype in her own right. She is the soothsayer, the fortuneteller, the visionary with tarot cards, palm lines, head bumps, and chicken livers.

She is a Mistress of the Sigil At Riess. She is an instructor in that powerful initiation.

She is ensconced above Wendy's Breandig Boutique, from which she casts her eyes deep into shadows to scout out the pathways of fortune. Vielle, and many of the ladies of court, adore Reethe. Frequently she is hated by the men of court who view her as a seductress and an ice queen, even a vast manipulator who convince their wives and mistresses to rearrange their lives. She is known to detest Eshiko the Medicine Man. She is considered part of the court group called The Ladies

William Roth

Counsel to the Court of Amber. A Lawyer friend of Corwin and Merlin’s from Earth, brought to Amber.

Ruda Alabega

Ruda Ale.jpg

Retired Pirate & Mistress of Ruda's Place in the Far Isle. She plied the seas for several centuries before the Patternfall wars mainly praying on Kashfran shipping first as a pirate then as a Begman privateer. Her activities brought her considerable fame and fortune as well as many determined enemies. After a particularly brutal battle in Kashfran waters she was led into Amber by Prince Brand where she and the remnants of her crew settled in the Far Isles, beaching a dozen badly damage ship on a western isle. Afterwards she converted them into a small community and has been its unofficial mayor ever since.

During the Patternfall War she and Draso Dint united forces to man ships to fight off a major naval intrusion into Amber by sea. Their uneasy alliance of traditional foes successfully ended the attempt of Chaos to invade Amber by sea. This earned her the Valorous Knight of Amber-Third Class. An accolade she laughs about often but is not above using it if needed to preserve her interests.

While Far Isle does not have an actual government Ruda is considered one of the people of importance there.

Even of Hale

Even of hale.jpg

Even of Hale is a weapons instructor for hire to the nonmilitary general public.

Alright. Amber is a military place with a military presence and nearly everyone has some concern that being well armed and well trained is a good thing. Not everyone can join the Amber Military but nearly everyone is armed. Fights in the street, self-defense, Sword Dancers, military Arts competitors, fencing tournaments of all levels. Dilettantes, wannabes, mercenaries, caravan guards, protective services, boasters and braggers, cutthroats, brigands, and every sort of person brandishing the blade.

Even of Hale is famous among these sorts as the very best one can hire to teach proficiency of arms to the nonmilitary general public. His personal credentials are incredible for people willing to train such people.

  • Even served 200 years in the Military of Amber, raising to the rank of legion Sub-commander. He spent 20 years in the Amber Elite, serving as RPS for meembers of the Royal Family including Bleys, Flora and Random.
  • He is a four time Grand Champion of the Sword of Arms Tournament.
  • He is a knight of the Royal Order, 3rd Class (Meant for non-nobles of great achievement but not bestowing a title). It ranks as one of the lesser peerages but still accords all the benefits a peerage does.
  • Granted a Court Baronage. His highest accolade. he was awarded the coronet for his actions at the Battle of Patternfall leading the Civilian City Cohorts. The Civilian City Cohorts are an irregular body of civilians with martial experience but not part of the Amber Guard.

At some point there was a deep and effective falling out with the royal family during the Reign of Eric I. The details were private enough that he was not banished from royal service but enough for him to leave the inner circles of the military and the court. he does not speak about it

So he is a extraordinarily capable for a trainer of the general public.

Even is a bit of a braggart and will never be accused of humility.
