The Golden Web of Intrigue
The youngest child of Marquis Gregor Halmeister, Stephan is currently 9, preparing to celebrate his 10th birthday. Surrounded by his exemplary siblings, Stephan has always felt slightly overshadowed. Coupled with his habit of forgetting the general courtesies and elaborate proceedings of etiquette when dealing with his father’s guests, Stephan has been the source of enough snide comments that he has grown quite shy. He is a clever young man, but he seldom trusts people enough to share his wit and words with them.
