The guard captain.
Braedon is the captain of Lady Nicola Baranti‘s personal guard, though he and his men spend less time guarding Lady Nicola’s person and more time hunting down the depraved cult known as the Order of the Stilled Tongue. He first encountered Evangeline, Salome, and Drica when they rescued him from the Order’s leader Mother Brianna. To his surprise, Evangeline even seemed to show interest in him – but that can’t possibly be true, he tells himself. How could a beautiful, sophisticated Orlesian lady like her be interested in a common soldier?
