Duke Bren ir'Gadden
Former Brelish Commander/Current Captain of the Sharn Redcloaks
Duke Bren ir’Gadden is a member of a very important Khoravar (half-elf) family. His paternal line extends from a Khoravar that realized the wisdom of working with House Ghallanda centuries ago. From this alliance, the Gadden family was able to become extremely wealthy. Near the beginning of the Last War, the Kameth Gadden, Bren’s grandfather, offered to finance large shipments of weapons and eventually warforged from House Cannith for Breland; this show of loyalty earned them the ability to marry into the extended royal family, and the ir’Gadden line was created.
Bren grew up resentful of being “new royalty,” and sought to prove himself on the battlefield. He was assigned an aide from House Medani, Alric Greentree, who was openly hired by his father to look after his son. After the Last War, Bren dismissed Alric, partially because of his deteriorating mental state after being overly exposed to a Draconic Prophecy manifestation, and partially to show that he had grown past the need to have his family protect him.
In 998 YG, he invited the people who had saved his life four years ago to celebrate his nomination as the Captain of the Sharn Redcloaks; it was during this time that a Mourning Haunt appeared, where his rescuers proved their worth again.
