Council of Thieves - Collins 2013
Aberian Arvanxi was a councilor to the Queen until accepting leadership of Westcrown, some say as punishment. He is a career politician, walking the fine line between keeping the city guard, Hellknights, the nobles, and the citizens happy- taking action only when promises will not suffice. His love of over-indulgence is well known in the city, and his absolute obsession with actors and the theater is legendary.
The old tradition of his seeing sophisticated operas and attending elegant after-parties has slowly been taken over by a thirst for action and violence. Aberian has allowed the production of theater “mortrescci” plays- a combination of bloodsport and theater where the trials and travails of the characters are very real.
