Myr Stonegaze is the commander of the Watchers of Shade Vale, and trusted adviser to Matron Elmira Marrowblade. In his younger years, Myr was held captive by the ruthless orc chieftain Krusk Bloodscalp. After months of torture and interrogation (during which his right eye was plucked out), he managed to escape and return to Shade Vale.
Krusk was later killed in single combat against Matron Elmira, and Myr went on to expose the traitor Therys Trollfriend and take his place as commander of the Watchers. It's rumored that his stone eye can see through lies and probe the minds of the weak-willed.
