Lt. Cordule
One of three lieutenants for the city guard.  Cordule is in charge of the western third (the section of Valarez abandoned after the grand exodus and left for the more unsavory types to inhabit).  She was orphaned as a young girl and sent to the Temple of The Mother in Valarez to be raised.  She is generally known as a trustworthy and decent person who does what she can in her overwhelming situation.
