Guardians of Korvosa
An older gentleman with salt and pepper white hair tied back in a ponytail, and a perpetually charming smile on his face, Vencarlo is the picture of the dashing swashbuckler; a role he says is long behind him at this age. He wears noble clothing in loose fitting fashions to allow for movement, and is never seen without his gloves.
Founder of the Orisini Academy of Swordplay, Vencarlo is well known about town for his charming demeanor and vocal criticism of the government. A former adventurer himself, he’s always eager to hear tales from those brave enough to delve into the vaults beneath Korvosa, or stand against the corruption that grips the city.
Vencarlo is retired now, leaving most training to the academy’s graduates. Rumor says he retired after his favored student, Sabina Merrin, defeated him in a duel that cost him two fingers, and left the school.
