The Rise of the Runelords
Sheriff Belor Hemlock
Belor Hemlock a Shoanti who inherited the post of sheriff when the previous holder, Casp Avertin, was murdered by Chopper. Belor saw the town through that last terrible night and is generally held to be the man who stopped Chopper’s rampage. In the emergency election that followed a week later, the people of Sandpoint made his role official, and Belor became the first Shoanti sheriff of Sandpoint. Honored and eager to live up to Casp’s legacy, Belor changed his last name from Viskalai to its Chelish translation, Hemlock—a choice that has endeared him to Sandpoint’s mostly Chelish populace but hasn’t sat well with his brother Garridan. Belor’s not-as-secret-as-he’d-like romance with Kaye Tesarani has put further strain on his relationship with his family.
