The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Name: Lord Alain D’Orsay
Age: 56 (b. 862)
Gender: Male
Powers: Seeker
Role: Lord of House D’Orsay, Leader of an Equestrian-Centered Business Empire, Husband to Lady Florence, Father to Constantin, Francois, and Pearce, Guardian (and secretly biological father) to Axelle

Other Pertinent Information:

Lord Alain D’Orsay is a loving father and a House Lord who values honor in his dealings. A D’Orsay through and through he has no fear of working with his hands and getting involved in the nitty gritty of his House’s businesses. He expects hard work from each of his sons and his ward, and he hasn’t been disappointed as far as that’s concerned.

But Alain has a secret.

His ward is actually his biological daughter, born of an affair with a skaa slave. He’s made the required threats to keep this a secret, and he managed to incorporate his Misting daughter into his household with a bit of maneuvering with the aid of his trusted steward and doctor. She was welcomed into the family as a “cousin,” and everything seemed to be working out great.

Until her and Pearce entered their teenage years and he walked in on a romantic encounter that shouldn’t have been possible given their blood ties . . . the ties he had no intention on revealing to them.

So he listened to his wife’s advice on broadening Pearce’s exposure to other ladies, so he’d move on from Axelle. He sent Pearce away for five years. It was difficult, not being able to see his youngest son each day and oversee his education in farriery, but thank the Lord Ruler, the long absence seemed to set his children straight. Pearce had won the favor of many a noble lady it seemed.

The family business was always one of the most important forces in life as a D’Orsay, and seeing that his family was well in body, mind, and spirit, allowed Lord Alain to throw himself deeper into his latest obsession - growing the horse racing arm of the business. Developing that part of things took much of his time and attention, and he allowed other matters to go unsettled, namely arranging the marriage of his sons. He’s planning on attending the social season in Luthadel to wrap up those arrangements while furthering D’Orsay business interests.
