Joseph Mantle

Easily recognised by full robes and chain of office totally out of place in the harbour, he makes a clear statement that he rules here. A beard modelled on that of his brother-in-law shows his political loyalties, though his over indulged belly is all his own.

Joseph Mantle is the Harbourmaster for New Elysium, and it is his job to keep the steady flow of vessels in and out of the town moving safely. He does his job well, at least in as much as there have never been any maritime incidents of note on his watch, though there are some suspicions as to where his loyalty are, especially as he is the brother-in-law of Vice Chancellor Magister.

In all likelihood little will pass through the port without his knowledge or say so, and it is suspected that many a gold coin gets passed his way for gazes to be averted.
