Baron Drelev was sent south to create a new settlement, protect river trade and guard Brevoy's southern borders. His sponsors are House Surtova, House Lebeda and House Khavortorov.
Baron Drelev has built a settlement, called Fort Drelev, on the west side of the lake, about 100 south of Wyvernstone bridge, where a river enters the lake. While the lake is relatively clear of pirates, trade through the Hooktongue slough, south of Drelev, is very dangerous and has been getting even more dangerous recently.
Some of the original Midmarch Adventurers have met Baron Drelev, his wife and Lord Numesti (his military commander).
