Hailing originally from a tiny village in southern Scotland,
Iain MacMillan is the son of a prosperous merchant. Born in
1560, MacMillan worked for his father during his formative
years, then attended university in the hinterlands of the
Barony of Wastekeep.
During his studies, MacMillan fell in love with the
wealthy English lady Rebekkah Thorne. They were married
immediately following the completion of MacMillan`s studies
What small funds MacMillan had made during his youth,
coupled with Thorne`s considerable personal fortune, helped
establish the young couple on a sizable estate in the Canton
of Akornebir, which Iain had given some small help to in
establishing. Iain`s university education has stood them in
good stead and he now serves as a librarian at a university
near the distant ruins of Azure Keep.
The brash and occassionally flamboyant Scotsman has
always enjoyed martial endeavors, priding himself on his
activities in both gentlemanly combat and war. He is, in
truth, little better than an avid amateur, however, as his
poor showings in tournament attest. There is also a growing
armory on his estate as he researches and constructs armor.
Recently accepting responsibility for overseeing the
training of interested Canton citizens, MacMillan continues
to dabble in the combat arts in the vain hope of improving
his pathetic skills.
Iain is far more skilled in the world of dance, an
interest he happily shares with his wife. He has
occasionally taught dance at local gatherings, and is
interested in learning more of the delicate art. It has been
said that he also possesses an adequate talent for song and
instruments, another interest of his he occasionally burdens
the populace with enduring.
The MacMillan-Thorne estate is currently in a time of
transition as the Lord and Lady celebrate and adjust to the
birth of their first child. Still active in the Canton,
MacMillan and Thorne have nonetheless been absent as they
come to terms with their new roles as parents in addition to
all other responsibilities.
