Obediah Northcrest was a descendent of Ulysses Northcrest and ancestor of the current Lord Northcrest and a former Baron of the city. He wtas known as the Wandering Baron. He apparently disappeared during one of these adventures. Wherever he roamed he now he lies there. He is from a period about three generations from current time, and is thus likely the father or directly related to Samias Northcrest, and the son of Benedict Northcrest.
An obelisk is dedicated to him in Kaitlin Court.
Obediah travelled the world
its secrets before him unfurled
He followed his star
To lands near and far
As the city sank and it swirled
