Conclave of Highward
When the attack launched by the House of Borrath began, he was injured by one of the assassins - suffering a deep slash across his face.
When Rydan was young, his elder brother killed the Black Whelpling that he had been raising as a pet, citing that the creature was too weak to be allowed to live.
Rydan and his cousin, the Baron of the House of Krey, Aerid simply do not get along. Their personalities are too similar but their paths to power are completely different. As quickly as possible, Rydan distanced himself from his cousin so that the two would not start a war. Ironically, he got along with Aerid's sister, Raegan .
Personality & Description
Rydan Krey is a man who enjoys taking what others have ignored, forgotten or cast off and turning it into something useful, profitable and prominant. He first did this with the reconstruction of the White Whelp in the city of White Harbor , turning an old and crumbling tavern into a place of prestige and profit. Later, he claimed the ruins of Whitecliff Keep - much to the laughter of Baron Aerid Krey - and turned it into Dragon's Rest, a fortified keep on the White Cliffs. People seem constantly to underestimate him and laugh at his projects only to be surprised if a bit startled at how well they turn out.
Rydan is a consumate scholar, enjoying arcane investigation into a number of subjects. He's written several texts about the ecology of whelplings and the use of local herbs.
