This is a treatise on the Shire Reeves of Abhien, those that have been chosen by the Maiden. Each one had found her sword, and with it wielded her justice until they few fell from life or fell from her favor. It is said that if a Shire Reeve ever left Abhien, her sword would be found not to far after again.
