Saraton Hanaestor is the younger of the two sons of Mirdael Hanaestor, self-styled Duke of Hanaellan, and his wife Cliana. He is an advisor on his father's court in Byngh, where statues were erected in the honor of himself and his brother, Ballion, some years ago.
Saraton is quite the opposite to his brother, preferring the lifestyle of a courtier. His skill in diplomacy, or rather talking his way out of sticky situations, is well-known. He is also considered something of a ladies' man, and always keeps up with the trends among SouthLands aristocrats.
