Tursq Ardratiche took his name from his grandmothers side of the Fall family after a disagreement between him and his father, the Late Lord Yvan Fall.

He married Lady Esther Lagos who had recently decided to persue a different path then her parents and peers and together they have taken the Fall's metallurgy secrets to another level.

Himself a practiced alchemist, he is one of the heads of the Merchants Guild, and the Ardratiche Skunkworks.

Tursq is a 6' 4" man of wiry muscle and dwarflike facial hair with a balded head. He has a triangular head and a robust nose on which he carries a pair of equally robust spectacles.

He is known to wrestle with his subordinates, and carousing with Ricarrum Esquee. He has a loose relationship with Berholdt Ketterrog to his wifes chagrin.
