The Touch of Prophecy
A hard-edged, efficient soldier with a bitter grudge left over from the Last War.
Ivan serves as personal secretary to Lord Brevik d’Deneith, though he is a skilled soldier in his own right. The party considers him the most likely suspect for releasing the warforged titan that nearly killed Ukko during their visit to the House Deneith enclave in Varna. He had means (one of the arcane rods anchoring the protective shell was damaged crudely with a bladed weapon), motive (his father was killed during the Last War by an incident in which members of Clan Deathstrike betrayed their House Deneith leaders) and opportunity (as Lord Brevik’s secretary, he knew when the party would be visiting the enclave for their audience, and he knew was able to approach the titan at a time when no one would see what he was doing). The party’s evidence was insufficiently strong to make a real case, so they simply told Lord Brevik of their suspicions and then left, glad to have survived their confrontation with the warforged titan.
