Meet Diego Storn

Darkovan Traveler

Diego Storn has led a varied life. As a young boy, he traveled off Darkover with his mother, visiting the pleasure world of Vainwal. Upon his return to Darkover, he joined the monastery of St. Valentine-of-the-Snows in Nevarsin. Tiring of that life, he emerged into the public life on Darkover via the RPG list.

Since his father was of the Aldarans, Diego agreed to become Regent of that Domain to help the Damisela Mabrie. Unfortunately, a combination of intrigue, betrayal, and power affected Diego's mind, in part due to his unstable Aldaran heritage. He fled Aldaran, and after a period of meditation and introspection, decided to travel around Darkover and report on his explorations. Frequently, his only companion was his dog, Jasper. More recently, though, he has lived in his ancestral castle, High Windward where he managed the fortune he built investing his share of the Aldaran legacy. He recently ended his bachelorhood by marrying Fianna Ridenow.
