From Ardrana

Dieron is a Lastini minstrel from the city of Mentoncha. He is well known throughout the country, even occasionally playing with Carther, the brother of Queen Chatha. He is married to Linneya Andárica, a famed illusionist, and the father of Lindreth, advisor to Princess Conchita, and thus has a great deal of influence with the royal family...for a man, anyway.
