First Citizen of Neverwinter
Jelvus Grinch was a merchant selling his goods in Waterdeep when Mount Hotenow exploded nearly thirty years ago, destroying his native city of Neverwinter. He returned immediately, putting both his gold and his muscles to work helping to save the city in those chaotic early days. He was recognized among the survivors as a leader, and referred to by many as the “First Citizen of Neverwinter.”
When Dagult Neverember arrived to rebuild the city, he recognized Jelvus as an important person to bring over to his side. Neverember recognized Jelvus’s leadership and accomplishments by making him New Neverwinter’s sheriff, reporting to General Sabine. When King Rodrik took the throne, he, too, recognized the depth of Jelvus’s experience, and made him the Minister of Trade for the Kingdom of Neverwinter.
