Rise of the Runelords
Kendra Deverin has served as Sandpoint’s mayor since 4702 AR. Lawmaker, judge, and general peacemaker, she has proven to be both an adept diplomat and stern hand when need be, both skills honed during her youth in Magnimar. With a personal—some say sisterly—style of governing, most of Sandpoint’s citizens hold deep respect for their fiery-haired mayor.
The youngest daughter of Sandpoint’s first mayor, Amos Deverin, and sister of its second, Fenchus Deverin, Kendra is the scion of one of Sandpoint’s four founding families. After Amos’s death by snakebite during a boar hunt and Fenchus’s demise after being trampled by a runaway horse, Kendra Deverin is the heir not only to the family fortune but to her family’s traditional leadership of Sandpoint.
Deverin was elected in 4702 AR despite the opposition of Titus Scarnetti, her opponent. The support of her close friend Casp Avertin, Sandpoint’s onetime sheriff, had much to do with her victory – though Deverin initially didn’t want the job, Casp nominated her for the role and she rose to the occasion.
Kendra is the niece of Lord Hobart Deverin, the head of her family in Magnimar.
