The Baron of Beaconsfield
The Baron’s unfocused gaze confirms his wistful longing for the past.
Perhaps dreaming of wars he may once have fought, a glorious history he may (or may not?) have had, or contemplating a personal lineage that assumes greater importance with every passing day, the Baron’s memories, real or imagined, lend him comfort.
With the Baron as the sole guardian of all things historical in Alveridgea, the line between reality, imagination and exaggeration is blurred beyond recognition. The medals on his proud chest are not in doubt, but whether he committed the acts that earned them is the subject of many rumors.
