Headmaster, Vancian Academy
Boen Scarnel, a gruff but warm dwarf, he is the reluctant head of the Vancian Academy, present since it's inception a little over a decade ago. A weaponsmith and weaponmaster of no little skill, his 'rise in the ranks' came from his straightforward and honest work with the initial newcomers to the school, and was perhaps the most surprised person when it was suggested he run the place. He took up the mantle (with a bit of chagrin) and has run it ever since. He is partly responsible for the expansion of the Academy, in presitge as well as size, and is more often found exactly where he started: in the training fields.
