Captain Arno Kessler
appointed steward of town
Kessler has a thin, humourless face and a long waxed moustache. A black leather eye-patch covers his right eye. His good eye has a piercing stare. He sports a black, wide-brimmed flat hat set at a rakish angle, and wears a breastplate over his black jerkin and close-fitting hose, both fashionably slashed. His left arm ends in a stump. A splendid sword of superior craftsmanship dangles at his belt.
