Essential Staff (NPC) Portfiolos

Askel Strausgard
A refugee from when the capital of Bozjan fell, Askel has traded a life of nobility for the honesty of adventuring. Now in his patriarchal years, he has settled down from adventuring to watch after his old adventuring crew at the Ward, namely Garrett, Touch’e, and now Teghan. A skills huntsman, and father figure.
Teghan Creithe
An Arithmetician from Gridania, his past with the Ward is a complicated one. Having gone missing for years after a horrific fight with the Lambs of Dalamud that has left him permanently scarred and oxygen dependent, he’s forsaken the comforts of life to dedicate himself to the Ward’s cause.
Kalladin "Kal" Manetheran
The newest addition to the Ward's essential staff, Kal is largely responsible for maintaining the face of the storefront. He is an apprentice to Garrett in all manners business and economics, and hopes to one day start his own company. Despite him being young, he is no stranger to the harshness of Ul’dah.
Silenna Yanaihara
Maid, Cook, Cleaner, Bartender, Silenna is a woman of many talents. She doesn’t share much about her past, and is very soft-spoken in general. Otherwise - a perfect pair of eyes and ears for Byregot's Ward.
T'yoki Isphani
One of the few employees Garrett’s father kept when Byregot’s Ward was known as Sadova & Co., T’yoki stuck around to help Garrett manage the intricacies of running the storefront. Largely responsible for the Studium, Ledgers, and materials of the Workshop, she makes sure that the Ward has everything it needs on the day to day - and gives flack to anyone who spends resources frivolously.

Story Overview

I. The Ward's Reach

Byregot's Ward was born when the son of a reputable family of craftsmen, Garrett Sadova, returned to his home in Ul'dah and inherited his father's shop as the proprietor and head artificer. After rebranding from "Sadova & Co.", the once humble store of magicked goods quickly grew into a massive enterprise, the reasons for this rapid expansion unknown to most. Many speculate that returning from the Battle of Carteneau and his subsequent years of adventuring changed Sadova. Other rumors say that one bad event after another has finally driven him to seek power. More hearsay however was quickly dashed as Byregot's Ward soon adopted a more humanist mission statement: To improve the lives of their clients and the people of their nations through their goods and services.Still, the growth of Byregot's Ward was unprecedented. Through various deals, trades, and services rendered to the other city-states and to the Grand Company of Eorzea, Byregot's Ward quickly expanded from it's home in Thanalan throughout all of Aldenard and Vylbrand. They started to offer a myriad of goods and products at their stalls, warehouses and stores; as well as a number of other services including adventuring, investigation, and mercenary work. There were few Leves that the company seemed to reject, garnering the company an uneasy reputation as a band of wanna-be heroes in it for coin and fame.But there have been a few instances where even this was in question. Reports state that they have been involved in the slaying of Voidsent and other unnamed monstrosities, such that have slain dragons in the past. Entire pirate bands have suddenly dissolved after their involvement, and the more vocal critiques went so far as to claim the Ward is consorting with Garlean spies and apostate mages. It appeared the means mattered little to this company, so long as ends were met.Despite all of this, Byregot's Ward, over the course of a couple of years, earned it's Merchant's Merit, and is officially recognized as a consortium within the Grand Company of Eorzea's jurisdiction. They have announced exciting projects for their workshops, including a transportation network said to rival even the fallen Empire's train network and airship travel. As we come to the end of the old world, however... one has to wonder what they intend to do next in Eorzea.Meanwhile, whispers of a New World Commission is circulating around the remnants of fallen orders and recovering governments...
