Behold! Gurkin and Dunnock, two of the fellowship of foolish souls dedicated to bringing Prince Osfalt Bricklayer to the throne of the Weald. Gurkin on the left, Dunnock on the right.
Reeve Gurkin: Gurkin is a short, chubby rat charged with a shire in the Fernward. He’s a landlord, farmer, and man of the law. He recently took over responsibilities over his father’s lands when the elder Gurkin passed away. Married for a handful of years, Gurkin has no heirs. He didn’t hesitate to leave his lands in the care of his wife when Duke Lyndis Fern of the Fernward called him to join in fellowship against cruel King Vertibule Redox. Gurkin is loyal but stuffy. Blunt, stuffy, honest and formal. He believes in just rule and good stewardship.
Dunnock, former heir to the Dukedom of the Dundowns: Called ‘Little Lord Luckless’ as a tease by his friends, the stout mouse Dunnock is the junior of his house. His father, Dunnock the Elder, advocates for his lands and titles in the capital at Hythyr. The Dundown lands and holdings were ripped from his family when King Vertibule gifted them to his foul allies, Norve Rat mercenaries and pirates from the chill lands beyond the Bear Gate. Dunnock is young, but has survived quite a few battles against foes large and mighty. He’s a worrier, prone to be a squeaky wheel, and eager to make his father proud and gain back their hereditary lands. Dunnock believes in family, loyalty, hard work and a good meal at the end of the day.
