Rise of the Runelords
This large, bald-headed Shoanti man is the current sheriff of Sandpoint. He became sheriff around five years ago, when Chopper killed the current sheriff, Casp Avertin, in a fight.
He is the brother of Garridan Viskalai, but changed his last name to Hemlock (the Varisian translation of Viskalai) when he became sheriff, in an attempt to put those Varisians at ease who were unsure of having a Shoanti sheriff.
He runs the town of Sandpoint by the book, and is most concerned with the wellbeing of those under his care.
