Rise of the Runelords
Sandpoint is currently under the watchful eye of Sheriff Belor Hemlock, a Shoanti who inherited the post of sheriff when the previous holder, Casp Avertin, was murdered by Chopper. Belor saw the town through that last terrible night and is generally held to be the man who stopped Chopper’s rampage. In the emergency election that followed a week later, the people of Sandpoint made his role official, and Belor became the first Shoanti sheriff of Sandpoint. Honored and eager to live up to Casp’s legacy, Belor changed his last name from Viskalai to its Chelish translation, Hemlock—a choice that has made him better regarded amongst the citizens of Chelish descent, but not endeared him towards his brother Garridan.
