[[:Category:|Fan art of Goran Vedmire]]

Goran Vedmire[spelling?] was a goliath hired by the Briarwoods in Wildemount to assist in taking over Whitestone from the de Rolos.[2] After the fall of Whitestone, he was given the title of "Duke" by the Briarwoods, lording over the denizens as one of the New Nobles.[3] When Vox Machina liberated Whitestone, Vedmire continued living there to serve the community as penance for his crimes against the people. As an NPC, he is played by Matthew Mercer.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

As with most goliaths, he is a large, hairless, gray-skinned man of immense strength.

Personality Edit

While he displayed cruelty during his reign as a noble, he also accepted when he was beaten and showed respect toward his adversaries. He agreed to serve the city as payment for his crimes and calmly acknowledged his defeat at the hands of Trisha in the arm-wrestling competition during the Whitestone Winter's Crest festival.[4]

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Goran Vedmire was one of the mercenaries that the Briarwoods brought with them from Wildemount in order to seize Whitestone. When they had successfully taken over, Vedmire was given a title, land, and power over the citizens of the town.[5]

"Stoke the Flames" (3x07) Edit

Vox Machina first heard of Duke Vedmire from Archibald Desnay, who told them of the New Nobles living within Whitestone. Vedmire was supposedly left in charge of the temple of Pelor, but had let it fall into ruin.[6] The party then made a plan for Scanlan to create a distraction at Vedmire's mansion while the rest went to attack Count Tylieri.[7]

When Scanlan—Polymorphed into a triceratops—busted into Vedmire's estate, he found the Duke waiting with eight armed guards prepared to attack.[8] Scanlan ran into the next room, teleported to the roof, and began setting the building on fire. Vedmire chased him to the roof, but through the use of Bigby's Hand the gnome managed to shove the goliath off of the building.[9] Scanlan then used that opportunity to escape from Duke Vedmire.

Character Information Edit

Abilities Edit

When Scanlan Shorthalt attacked his mansion and guards, Vedmire was unable to do much aside from chase after the bard as his house began to burn down.[10] Keeper Yennen claimed that Vedmire "wields a blade as long as his body".[11]
