Sir Cole was a protege of the previous mayor of Attariil, along with the mayor’s son, Lord Garedus. On his deathbed, the previous mayor chose Cole to be the new leader, and this enraged Garedus. Cole worked hard to prove himself worthy of the title, and most of the people support him. He befriended the heroes after they were vouched for by Samuel Browncott, one of Cole’s most trusted advisors.
When Phran arrived with goblins from Goblintown to aid in Attariil’s defense, Cole quickly took a liking to him. Now the two are good friends, and Cole has a vested interest in keeping Goblintown safe.
