Noble and Head of the Ranthian Research Institute
Edward Farspear is third in line to become the head of the Farspear noble line, which makes him a somewhat distant cousin of Emperor Gameron Fairchilde Ranthia. As the head of the Ranthian Research Institute his main purpose is to draw out the secrets of the Ash Vents. He is softspoken and disarming. Like all of the Farspear nobles his familiar is the ghost of one of his ancestors.
Edward is currently being held prisoner at Blackwall by the Inquisitorium for the crime of treason when it was discovered that he was attempting to enslave demons without the approval of the Council of Highlords.
