A tall, nearly elderly woman, though still athletic for someone of 65 years, Audara Drovust spent close to 30 years as an armiger, Hellknight, and field officer before ascending to command of the fort. She holds the rank of paralictor in the Order of the Pike, a Hellknight order dedicated to defeating monsters threatening human lands. The Order of the Pike makes up the majority of Fort Inevitable’s garrison, and its members patrol the western reaches of the Echo Wood and the outskirts of the ruins of Mosswater while sponsoring expeditions to join the Mendevian Crusade.
Lady Drovust rarely draws a sword herself these days, but is an experienced general with a gift for engineering and logistics. She personally designed the town’s defenses and oversaw their construction for her predecessor, Lord Commander Varden.
Lady Drovust also heads up the bureaucracy of the Citadel. Tax assessments, public works, justice, licenses—everything eventually crosses her desk and receives her personal attention. She doesn’t indulge in malice for its own sake, but she firmly believes it is the right and duty of the strong to govern the weak and order their lives efficiently. Having finally succeeded in getting Fort Inevitable running more or less as she thinks it should, she is actively planning her next move to bring more of the Crusader Road under her efficient administration, all in the interest of supporting the crusade in Mendev.
