Year of the Tiger
idiot son of a human noble man
Son of a minor aristocrat. Hired caravan to move some cloth to a city. While there, kept trying to be ‘friendly’ with Birel. On the way back, her refusals have gone from ‘no thank you’ to ‘keep your hands to yourself if you want to keep them at all.’ He got all drunk and tried to force her. The two of them were found in the woods, clothing rather haphazard and him bleeding from her knife (which unfortunately missed by only an inch or two). Jernin says Birel tempted him and now wants to accuse him of rape. Everyone thinks the boy is full of it, but Betkirk is all business and took Jernin’s side and disowned Birel and received almost nothing for an expensive job. Still walks around as if he owns the River family. Birel still wishes to have another chance at taking his family jewels.
