Edoar Acalon (pronounced EH-doe-ahr AHK-kah-lohn), called Gran'ther, by his descendants at Acalon house in Summersea, Emelan is the paternal grandfather of Pasco Acalon. Like most members of the Acalon family, Edoar worked in the Provost's Guard of Summersea, Emelan. He, as the eldest member of the family, is the head of the Acalon household.
Edoar Acalon worked as a harrier when he was younger.
Although retired, his sees it as his duty to instruct his grandchildren in harrying and have them learn baton-work and other things about crime-fighting. In 1039 KF, he has at least four grandchildren who are in their teens: Pasco, Halmaedy, Rehana, Haidaycie, and Vanido Acalon, several from different children. He sometimes oversees their harrying lessons, but they are usually led by his daughter-in-law, Zahra, Pasco and Halmaedy's mother. He has a few other grandchildren, but they are all younger or older.
When Pasco hung three of his cousins in the air by magic, due to fear of being beaten up by his cousin Vani, Edoar asked them all very calmly how this happened. When it was revealed that Vani had been picking on, and bullying Pasco, even beating him up, Edoar was livid and informed them all that they should be ashamed as future harriers and crime-fighters to turn away from this and to not report it.
After Pasco fetched Lady Sandrilene, Duke Vedris's great-niece and an incredibly powerful thread-mage, Edoar was shocked that Pasco would bother a lady from so powerful and noble a family with this problem. Edoar was also incredibly taken aback when Sandry informed them all that as Pasco's discovering mage, she would be obligated to teach him. Edoar informed her that the nobility rarely teach and that she should not concern herself with Pasco.
Edoar is a tall man who uses a cane to walk.
Personality and traits
He is very imperious, but also very calm in intense situations. When three of his grandchildren were hung in the air by magic, all he said was "How did this come about? Surely you have not learned to fly, or someone would have mentioned it at supper."
