The Western Lands
A grizzled former mercenary, Vance was an excellent soldier and an even better leader.
His reward was to be stationed in Westhold as Captain of the Guards.
While most of the soldiers of Freeport would have been upset, Vance was happy: his family is from Westhold, and this let him move his wife and children back to be with their extended family. He is well-liked by his subordinates and respected in town.
