Guvnar’s is the leader of Cliffside’s self-styled noble family, the Crowbate’s. A line of Humans, the family is led by the self appointed Governor Bill Crowbate; addressed these days as the Guvnar. Though Bill Crowbate attempts to manage the trappings of one, the Guvnar is no true nobleman. He was a pirate captian who was shipwrecked on the Bronze Island with most of his crew intact. Setting themselves on Cliffside, Crowbate declared himself ruler. To keep Xyphreneus at arm’s reach, the Guvnar installed a new tax collector. The Dragon, however, didn’t care so long as the money kept rolling in and so the Guvnar has remained ruler of Cliffside; a noble by default. As a ruler the Guvnar has made sure to be just excessive enough to keep Cliffside in fear of him, but not so excessive that they would consider open rebellion. “Mildly unsettling” is the phrase the Guvnar uses to describe his reign.
