Ragnon Delver is a distant and somewhat detached individual. He was the third son of a minor noble family in Free Haven. Since the family title was not to be his, he joined the city guard to make his own name. Unfortunately, while on a patrol outside of town, he lost his hand in a skirmish. He was given full honors by the guard, but left their ranks shortly thereafter. His family cursed him for a coward, but the truth was that he simply felt he had nothing left to offer the uniform. Having been taught at the Repository by Lelaras Kenivelson himself when he was young, Ragnon asked for a job teaching and has been doing so for two years now. His missing hand doesn’t impose any difficulty in his work, but his occasional bout with melancholy concerns some of his students and co-workers.
Ragnon Delver’s teaching style varies from class to class. When he teaches mathematics or reading comprehension, he is usually easygoing and willing to let the students figure things out for themselves. When he teaches history, though, he adopts a personality much like that of the drill instructor that he had as a cadet in the city guard. He is especially fond of military history and sometimes loses all track of time during a lecture on the subject.
