Oriad, formerly Oriad Daen, was once a Lieutenant for House Daen. However, upon witnessing the public execution of two completely innocent citizens, Oriad left his post and his house for good. He now makes a living as a owner and bartender at a local inn, though his military training never completely left him. He keeps an ear out for rumors and suspicious activity, which has proved useful more than once.
A few years ago, Oriad discovered that the two innocent citizens executed so long ago had a child, and that child escaped. Seeing an opportunity for penance, he arranged for her to use one of the storerooms in his inn as her personal residence. The room is small by human standards, but sized perfectly for a gnome. Oriad now forwards any useful information he gathers to Fox, and the partnership has become quite profitable for both.
