Siege of Anvil GateEdit
During the Siege of Anvil Gate, Alderman Buyal Casani led the council of Aldermen in the town. He co-ordinated with Captain Ranald Sander and Lt. Victor Hoffman to keep the civilian population calm and organized. One of the Aldermen later married Sgt. Samuel Byrne and Sheraya Byrne. As the civilian leaders of the town, the Aldermen were also expected to carry out legal punishments, however Casani refused to execute a man who had stolen rations from the garrison.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Alderman is a member of a municipal assembly or council in many jurisdictions founded upon English law. The term may be titular, denoting a high-ranking member of a borough or county council, or denote a council member chosen by the elected members themselves rather than by popular vote.
