By the Blood of the Emperor
The Emperor's trusted chamberlain
A slender man in his late 30s, Kaden Slern has been the Emperor’s domestic right hand for over a decade. He keeps Elderspire stocked with food and wine, keeps the floors shining and polished, the audiences scheduled. He is also responsible for Anton’s education. He oversees a staff of over 800 (though most of them probably won’t be coming to work tomorrow).
Kaden has been in Imperial service since he was a child, as his father was lord Chamberlain for Larkspurs father. Kaden knows the ins and outs of running a giant palace. Whether he can keep it running while it’s under siege is yet to be determined, but he is an immensely resourceful man.
