The first casualty of the mysterious deaths running rampant in Caledonia.
Duke Alexios, along with his wife and his entire household, were found dead the day following their attendance to the party held in honor of the anniversary of King Cailith’s coronation.
The household servants entered by a back door in the kitchens only to find that the reason no one had answered was that everyone was dead. Each person in the household was found with matte grey skin, the color of ash, and hair that had turned brittle and white. The victims otherwise appeared at peace.
Duke Alexios had been an older, but confident man. House Alexios has been highly ranked in the peerage of Caledonia for a long time, and he tended to avoid politics. He was highly respected, and often advised the young king.
