The Krosven Steppe
Human, born 3E 403, died 3E 446
Sar Thomas Krosven is the son of Iann Krosven, a famous Eoran explorer who died attempting to scale the Knob. Thomas decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and ascended the mountain himself, reaching the peak in 3E 438. In doing so, he saw over the Spine and spied the Steppe, the first in Irolean history to do so. He also, on his way down, spotted a natural pathway that could potentially give way to a pass through the mountain range itself.
When he returned to Ironrock, Queen Isobel knighted him almost immediately and he was chosen to be the leader of the excavation team that would carve out Krosven Pass. Unfortunately, he was killed during the excavation when a group of dwarves accidentally opened a pocket in the rock that released Xaletex the dragon.
