Typical Dialogue:

Damned fey think they rule the realm - when has any of these 'defenders' raised a blade to defend a human of the realm?

If you ask me, we should let them rot, what aid have they ever offered us?


Stiele Caelan is a Captain of the Dhoesone army, commanding the castle at Hazeltyne. His father was Gwenaël Dhariel and his mother a scullery maid, Alexandrine. He is a half brother of Vertico Dhariel.

Stiele is not one of the highest ranking nobles in the army, but his fame and familial connections make him one of the most important. As the bastard half brother of Vertico Dhariel, Vertico looks out for Stiele at a distance. Stiele's ruthlessness makes him unsuitable for the Count's inner circle, but Vertico honors family and his father's affection for the boy, nonetheless. Stiele's office as Royal Baliff of Hazeltyne is a choice position over a Baronial lordship in Sonnelind.

Like his father, Gwenaël the Bold, Stiele has a reputation for heroism and has undertaken several quests. He has sought after the lost treasure of Hjalsone. He has killed the bandit chief Oervel. During the recent raids by giants, Stiele faced off three times against a giant, killing two of them and pursuing the third as it fled.

Stiele believes the stability and strength of the realm is undermined by its many disparate races. The elves he regards as arrogant and unconcerned with the people, as opposed to the forests, of Dhoesone. This has made him an ally and a surprisingly good friend of count Alaric Huire of Sidhuire. This partnership often causes him to work against Rhuimach Taeline who he sees as a rival although Stiele would never knowingly endanger the realm in his attempts to prove Rhuimach's unworthiness. Stiele is lionized by many in Dhoesone for 'standing up to the elves' as he is one of the few to risk angering the Baroness by openly chastising the troops from Tuarhievel for failing to aid the humans of the realm more.

Stiele may dislike and distrust elves, but he truly loathes goblins. Stiele was captured by goblins when a young soldier but few would be so foolish as to ask him of the experience for it is said he has killed two men in duels over such questions. Stiele watches the goblin mercenaries hired as part of the treaty with Thurazor like a hawk and often seeks to undermine goblins of wealth or influence in Dhoesone.
