Proconsul Vita Augustina
Proconsul Vita Augustina is the appointed ruler of Vale and its surrounding territories. She is regal and rarely suffers fools in her presence. It is known that prior to coming to Vale as its governor, she was a political power in the city of Kelsay at the heart of the empire, having served as a Knight in her youth. It would appear that she does not see her exile here as any kind of demotion, though that seems for all the world to be the case. She is considered to be firm, but fair in her leadership, with the exception of an apparent a blindness to the sheriff’s misdeeds. She has many supporters in town, but appears to be either loved or hated by the populace, with little room in between. An oddly populist governor, many of the more wealthy citizens of the town grumble against her and quietly seek her downfall.
