The Eternal Brotherhood
Lord Warden of Fallcrest, Founder of the Nentir Council
Doran Markelhay is the eldest son of the deceased Faren Markelhay. He was born of his father’s first marriage, so when Lady Allande married the widower Faren, he was sent south to be a ward of Lord Brandon, a minor lordling near the sea. There he grew into s brave military commander. He became famous as a tactician and a leader of men. When he became a man grown, Doran left Lord Brandon and took up work as a mercenary. He joined a dragonborn army led by Baelion, and quickly became Baelion’s right hand. When Armos Kamroth contacted him, Doran immediately grasped the situation, and decided he must return home. Baelion pledged his support, and his army. Doran traveled to the major cities in the Nentir Vale and established the foundation for a Nentir Confederation between the independent city-states. The Vale would be controlled by the Nentir Council. Through the actions of everyone’s favorite heroes, Faren Markelhay was assassinated, the Sons of Nerath were wiped out, and Doran took the throne and became Lord Warden of Fallcrest. He left Kamroth in charge of Fallcrest while he leads the campaign against Thunderspire.
