Duke of a small town
The Ellington family has a history of magic in their blood, literally. It is quite common for their blood to have magical properties. The ability to cure disease, magic strength, create a horrible poison, etc… His sister Amaza Ellington has the ability to heal.
The Duke has yet to show any sign of the Ellington curse/blessing. He has gained control of a small town made a deal with the local goblin horde to tighten his grasp on the surrounding area.
