Karston Pike

Hailing from the Vesten Clan, Karston Pike was a cunning and utterly ruthless Vaas Warlord who founded the City-State of Pike's Ferry.

Karston was never a great warrior, but was instead a master negotiator. He d cleverly used deception to conquer his rivals and take complete control of the Vesten Clan.

He later took over the settlement of Pike's Ferry, and made it his stronghold, declaring it a "City-State".

Karston then granted himself the title of "Margrave of Pike's Ferry;" a title his descendants would hold for centuries thereafter.

The House of Pike eventually became one of the wealthiest and most influential families in the entire Vaas nobility.

Lord Karston spent much of his wealth building a grand fortress, called "Pike's Tower."
