Former ruler of Birmery, long dead
Deston died some 900 years ago, or so, and was the brother-in-law of Queen Yama, who was the first Human ruler on Vyr.
Deston was known as a wheeler-dealer, and traded lands for money after Yama’s death, giving parts of the continent to the elves and the dwarves, and making peace (for the most part) with the orcs up north. Deston’s lineage has controlled Birmery since that time.
