Josef Ironblade is the ruler of Evergreen Vale. He is now in his early forties, and has ruled the vale for eighteen years. He is considered a fair ruler, with a decent concern for the wellbeing of his people. If he were not, it is unlikely that his barony would long survive in such a dangerous world.
Josef is short, stocky, with dark hair and a thick, short beard. He is a formidable warrior.
He is generous to his followers, but deals harshly with disloyalty.
