Benefactor of Highwater, smart, aloof
Helmener organized and funded the resettlement of Highwater. He is thought of as odd and isolated by the folk of the village, but he is well regarded. He even generously funded not just the resettlement but has encouraged the village to grow by offering one hundred gold to every family for each baby they have.
Few, save the parents, have been more outraged at Manseba’s abduction of the children than Helmener. He has personally gone out into the forest to try and find them but cannot find Manseba’s Grove, and Ser Tor’s memory is so addled he cannot tell others where to find it. Helmener has offered a reward of five hundred gold for the head of Manseba, and one hundred gold for every abducted child who is returned.
