Character type: Staff
Appearance: Benjak is 5'9" tall, broad-shouldered and muscular. He has light-brown hair (starting to thin a little), and blue-grey eyes. For his daily duties as Steward of Alonel Hold, he usually wears work clothes with a good tunic and his hold knots. He changes into something more fashionable for dinner with his Lordship.
Personality: As Steward, Benjak adopts a gruff manner with the servants and dependents of Alonel Hold, making sure they know who's boss (after his Lordship, of course). However, he shows great affection towards his family.
History: The only son of a journeyman harper, Benjak trained in archivism and administrative methods at the northern Harper Hall after losing his voice, and came to Arolos on becoming a journeyman. He worked for the Lord of Arolos Hold under the Steward for several years. When Alonel Hold was started, Benjak transferred there to take up the Steward's post.
