Brothers of the Tor
The tall and plain faced heir to Birchkeep and its lands.
Heward Birch is the son of Lord Thomas Birch and the heir to the Birchkeep lands. Heward has apparently had a falling out with his father over a peasant woman named Bertie who Heward has fallen in love with. Six months ago Bertie was exiled from the town of Birchkeep itself and forbidden from meeting with Heward Birch. Since then Thomas Birch has taken ill and Heward is now maintaining his fathers lands. Not long after Thomas Birch became sick a large tax shipment being sent from Birchkeep to Duke Whentworth has gone missing.
