Kesten is a member of one of Brevoy’s noble houses in name only. He was involved with a scandal when an affair between Kesten and a lowborn woman named Tania, a weaver’s daughter, became public knowledge. His father Evan, a cousin of the Garess family patriarch, disowned Kesten, who fled to Restov to serve as a mercenary. He volunteered to lead the small group of soldiers to help guard Oleg’s Trading Post after his own depression and shame grew too much to handle. Kesten hopes to either make a name for himself as the defender of a remote fort, or to find an honorable death among the bandits and other dangers in the region.

Kesten and his troops were stationed at Oleg’s Trading Post. He has developed a deep passion for Railgh. Over the course of the past year he courted Railigh and wed her. They were unexpectedly blessed with twins.
He has taken to his position of Excubitor exceedingly swiftly. Quickly forming a strong guard in the city.
