Lord Jules Weathermay
The ailing Lord Jules Weathermay, patriarch of the Weathermay family, rules Mordent from his grand estate, Heather House. The Weathermays have always governed with a light hand, and despite Lord Weathermay’s poor health, life rolls on in Mordent, as consistent as the tides. The Weathermays are the last prominent noble household in the domain, the others having fallen to tragedy and attrition centuries ago. Indeed, the crumbling estates that dot Mordent’s moors testify to such vanished bloodlines. The Weathermays have managed to hold on to both their estate and their lineage, though their presence is barely felt outside of the village of Mordentshire. Lord Weathermay rarely pronounces any laws; he merely collects regular taxes and keeps a close eye on his lands. Mordent’s villages are essentially autonomous, administrating their own laws and militias. Mayors and other civic servants are elected from among the male property owners, who remain dutifully mindful of how their decisions will affect the poor. The mayor of Mordentshire, Daniel Foxgrove, is the widower of Lord Weathermay’s daughter and father of Gennifer and Laurie.
Married to Martha Scoville Weathermay.
Father of George and Alice Weathermay.
Grandfather to Gennifer and Laurie Weathermay-Foxgrove.
