Silas Letherington has been Lord Mayor of New London for five years, having worked his way up through the ranks of the Council. Ever since The Great Divide, when the country was split into the Guild of Cities and the Countryside Alliance, Silas has wanted to rule the capital. Now that he does, he has no intention of giving up control. He takes great delight in the annual Lord Mayor’s show, parading through the city with representatives of the Worshipful Companies. His ruthless leadership results in frequent changes in personnel amongst the other council members and tough working conditions for the citizens of New London. His success is not always popular which is why citizens sometimes call him Old Leathery behind his back and why he is always accompanied by his Beefeater bodyguards.
