The Legends Of The Coast
the constable of three rivers ford
Fenwick Mowbray is the not-so-honorable constable of Three Rivers Ford and the surrounding farms. A smarmy, conniving fellow, he got his position through favors owed and empty promises he never intended to keep. Oh, he keeps the peace when there is no threat to him in the doing, but he favors the moments when he can levy fines instead of having to deal physically with any threat to the people of his community. Constable Fenwick is a bit of a coward when his opponent is stronger than he is himself, but when they are weaker, he lords his authority over them with great relish. He uses his position to line his pockets, and in the pursuit of that, he has forged a profitable agreement with the management of the Bloody Bucket to turn a blind eye to most of what goes on there, the drunken brawling and the like. However, he is by far not above targeting travelers on the road entering or leaving Three Rivers Ford to see what profit can be made off of them. One of his favored tactics is to invent fines and taxes as needed to fit whatever situation he finds, and so long as there are no physical threats directed his way, he will insist upon immediate payment for the infractions. All for the betterment of the community, of course, though by community Fenwick means his own coffers. In appearance, Fenwick Mowbray is rather on the thin side, though relatively handsome and not far beyond his early thirties. He is always meticulously well groomed and even more well dressed, often far above what his station actually warrants. He wears gloves when he is out about town to avoid touching the filth of the streets or brushing hands with common folk. The sword that he carries is more ornament than weapon, as the good constable prefers to appear impressive rather than put in any actual work. He sports a mustache of which he is exceptionally proud, and he has an infuriating habit of looking down his hawkish beak of a nose at all those around him.
