Biography Edit

Background Edit

Before the Briarwoods seized control of Whitestone, Archibald had been the chancellor to Frederick de Rolo.[2]

"Stoke the Flames" (1x30) Edit

Vox Machina met Archibald during their first visit to Whitestone. As they spoke to Keeper Yennen about the Briarwoods, Archibald entered the room and asked the group how they thought they could make a difference. Percy recognized him and dropped the disguise he had been wearing. The older man was both shocked and pleased to see him, having thought he had been killed. He informed Percy that his sister, Cassandra, also survived, and had been leaking information to the citizens of Whitestone.[6] Archibald requested the help of Percy and Vox Machina in freeing the city from the Briarwoods and told them the known whereabouts of the New Nobles. Vox Machina then left to kill Count Tylieri.
