Felonius Akrum is the eldest son of a (now dead) rich Thyatian spice merchant. Felonius inherited his father's money 20 years ago and used it to buy a knightly title from Stefan Karameikos and land from Stefan's vassal Count Durian west of Threshold. Felonius then built the town of Farstead and a castle with it. He was formerly an officer in the Thyatian army and loves military things - he imagines himself to be an ancient Hattian war-chief and loves hunting because it symbolises the Hattian spirit to him. He also loves to joust. He tends to dislike non-humans but loves dwarves, especially as drinking companions. He is somewhat loud and boorish and is known for his ability to belt out drinking and battle songs. In spite of his martial demeanour, during the last war he paid a scutage tax to the Duke rather than actually fighting. Since then he has felt somewhat ashamed of his cowardice and longs for another war so he can prove himself in battle at the head of his Baronial guards. He is quite loyal in his vassalage to King Karameikos and to Lord Handroc (the Seneschal of County Durian). Felonius' ancestry is somewhat mixed but he looks Hattian - red-faced and silver haired, and quite large. At castle Farstead there is a special pulley system rigged up to hoist him into the saddle when he is in his armour.
