Grand Duke of Ainesford
A character for the Lands of Roawia LEGO Castle game.
Lord Sorley Meyrick, the Grand Duke of Ainesford, has had a celebrated and storied life, starting out as a young ranger over twenty years ago. Losing his right eye to an orc as he slew it, he left the ranger life to become an adventurer, merchant (some say smuggler) of high-priced weapons and wares, and then a eventually a statesman. He was widely admired until his disastrous leadership at the Battle of Ainesford, where he fought the Loreesi in an open field battle and lost badly to Mark of Falworth. He barely retained his title over Ainesford as a result, but partly redeemed himself by quickly overcoming the Queen’s forces during the last conflict. Cold, shifty and sarcastic, he is known for “playing his cards close to his chest” in all matters of state.
