The Heart of a Defiled Land
The mayor of Skalin's Rib
A humorless, thickly-muscled, black-haired human, Vicros brooks no nonsense in his town. He rose quickly from humble beginnings, and at age 30 was elected mayor for life. That was 20 years ago, and the town has prospered under his strict but fair leadership. He is assisted by a council of seven village elders and his deputy mayor, Elemita Chorster.
