Corruption of Azim
Benjamin was once a mercenary/bounty hunter that was famous for tracking down escaped prisoners. Through his reputation, he eventually came to work for the Kingdom of Validras in an official capacity, and after an injury on his leg was unable to continue his work. Eventually he suggested creating a prisoner colony where dangerous criminals could live their lives out, and was appointed to create and head the Far Waters Prison Colony thirty years ago. The colony has grown since then in ways not originally anticipated, and now he is more of a warden, taking in violent criminals from anybody who can get them to his city, than an official of Validras.
Approaching 65, he is still quite capable of running the colony yet has been feeling the cold chill of age creep over his bones for some time. The old injury that forced his retirement aches most days in the cool of the morning, and he now uses a cane in private meetings and in his quarters. He is lawful good, but no longer feels as beholden to Validras as he once did. He now views himself as working for anybody trying to uphold order in a world of chaos.
