Rise of the Runelords
Sheriff Belor Hemlock serves as the main figure of law in the town of Sandpoint. He runs the garrison as well as the town militia. Mayor Deverin consults him constantly in matters of town security and any legal issues that arise.
Belor Hemlock, a native Shoanti who inherited the post of sheriff when the previous holder, Casp Avertin, was murdered by Chopper. Belor saw the town through that last terrible night and is generally held to be the man who stopped Chopper’s rampage. In the emergency election that followed a week later, the people of Sandpoint officiated his role, and Belor became the first Shoanti sheriff of Sandpoint. Honored and eager to live up to Casp’s legacy, Belor changed his last name to its Chelish translation, from Viskalai to Hemlock.
