From Ardrana

Pedemon was once a lieutenant in the White Army, assigned to lead the military post in the town of Porfiri. There, he ensured the maintenance of the signal tower that was the final leg of the relay of messages from Hanmer to Braith. However, since Hanaellan's withdrawal from the White Alliance, Pedemon has remained loyal to Duke Mirdael -- or, more likely, to the defense of his hometown, no matter who its overlord might be -- so he now wears the colors of the army of Byngh.
