Garreth "Eth" Peatfingers

Description:

Standing 2’10’ tall Garreth is slightly shorter than your average halfling and is often mistaken for a child. However this is far from the truth. He is 30 summers old and has traveled most of this adult life. His long dark cloak keeps him out of direct sunlight most of the time so his skin is pale. His long black hair is usually kept in a braid that nearly reaches his knees. At times he will take his braid and wrap is around his neck or tuck it in his shirt to keep it out of the way or keep it from getting caught or damaged.

Bio:

Garreth is the son of a wealthy Land-Owning family. Their family estate is located in The North of Neverwinter. Originally thought to be worthless, the land was given to one an ancestor named Baro Silkspinner as payment for a gambling debt. While exploring his newly aquired property Baro made a discovery. Peat. For those not aware Peat is a naturally occuring material that, when dried, makes a excelent fuel. Baro farmed and sold the peat at a high profit. This allowed him to build a home, start a family. It was at this time he changed his name from Silkspinner to Peatfingers. Later he began to invest his profits in other ventures and created the foundation for the family’s fortune.

The Family name “Peatfingers” originally started as an insult and a joke. A comment on the dirty condition of Baro’s hands due to him digging around in the bogs all day. However as Baro’s wealth and influence increased, he took the nickname as the family name to spite the nay-sayers. Now people all over the region know the family name Peatfingers, and the name Silkspinner has faded with time. References to the former name still exist though. The family crest is an emerald green spider surrounded by ten emerald green stars on a black field.

As time went on (which it tends to do) the family got larger and larger. As did the family home. It started as a small one room cabin and has spiraled out into a grand estate. With each new addition being larger and more grand than the last. New construction has been at a standstill for the past few years. All recent work has only been to renovate existing buildings. Most of the sections of the home are scaled with halflings, but there are several building designed to accomidate “big folk”. These have furninshings for people of varying statures, but are designed so that everyone using them sit at roughly eye level to each other. As the family itself got larger some members moved away. Controling buisness interests abroad, going on adventures (and sometimes getting themselves killed), starting families (and fortunes) of their own. The members that stay take over various parts of the family buisness locally, school the younger family members, or take care of the many household chores. There are servants employed at the home, and most of those are work in positions outside the home itself such as gardener, stable hand, etc. The rest of the positions in the home that are normally filled servants are filled with younger family members earning their place in the family.
