Don Ian Raven of Tadcaster is a rapier fighter and artist residing in Bhakail. He is a companion of the Orders of the Golden Rapier and the Silver Crescent, and dually-deputized: Diamdeme Herald, deputy to Eastern Crown Herald, as well as Deputy East Kingdom Webminister.

He is also the captain of the Tadcaster Militia.


It is the late 1300's, and Ian is a land owner near a small brewing town halfway between York and Leeds. His manor raises sheep for the wool trade, the brewery on the River Wharfe makes a renowned porter, and the militia which he commands (while not a standing army) is ever ready to serve the crown protecting the Kingdom from interlopers and brigands.

This far north, there is thankfully very little plague.
