Born and raised in the privileged courts of the Capitol, Marvin Suur very much prefers to be called Mr. Suur. He is very proud of his heritage and takes his administrative duties at the Capitol Checkpoint very seriously. He knows the crucial role of the Checkpoint in protecting the Capitol, having lived through attempted invasions and raids from orcs, humans, giants, and even dragons in over two decades of public service.
However, in times of peace, he curries favor to those who offer him money or otherwise curry favor to him. Likewise, when he encounters members of uncommon races, he tends to hold them back with delays for further vetting, processing, and general bureaucracy to make doubly sure they can be trusted to enter “the peak of civilization.” He is convinced that Capitol Peak truly contains the best of civilization, magic, and technology, and has always believed that those races that hold prominent government positions deserve to be there and should not be tainted with the influence of “those uncommon foreigners.”
Mr. Suur has made his main residence in the Checkpoint itself, and was involved in its development, including the building of a market, a greenhouse, an impressive wine cellar, an art gallery, and the Lawful Commoner tavern and inn, all under the shadow of a large watchtower. Although he has never left Capitol Peak, he prefers to leave the adventures and travels to other folk, being perfectly content with his perfectly civilized accommodations.
