Walter Cobbleton was a Noble who was sympathetic to the Pagans. He hired a Pagan named Scythe to do gardening for his family (though probably under Pagan magical influence). Little did he know that his garden was a rally point for Pagans and their beasts. Walter began to fear his garden, and decided to confront Scythe. That was his last journal entry, and can be assumed that the Pagans invaded his manor soon after. Walter and his wife Harriet were most likely killed in the invasion. Their daughter was most likely taken.
Walter's employer sent someone to check up on him and his wife. A City Watch Detective was sent to investigate, deciding on no backup. The fate of the employee and the Detective remains unknown.
