Count Varian Jeggare is a Chelaxian noble3 and venture-captain of the Pathfinder Society. Along with his bodyguard, Radovan, Jeggare has investigated mysterious deaths among the aristocracy of Cheliax and ventured deep into the mountains of Ustalav to learn the true fate of a missing Pathfinder.45 Since his Ustalavic trip, the count has been accompanied by his faithful Ustalavic wolfhound named Arnisant.6. He is the son of Pontia Jeggare and Variel Morgethai.7


Jeggare learned magic at the Acadamae, an arcane college in Korvosa, where he specialized in metamagic8 and evocation.9 Unfortunately, he experienced an unusual condition during his studies in which he suffered an acute case of nausea while retaining and casting spells. As a result, he abandoned his studies and returned to his home in Greensteeples in Egorian.10 Despite this peculiar condition, Jeggare eventually passed the final examination at the Acadamae.11

During a trip to Ustalav, Jeggare rediscovered the secrets of riffle scrolls in an obscure library. With this new method of casting spells, he had a handy remedy for the crippling nausea he normally suffered.1

Jeggare is a worshipper of Desna first and foremost, but only in private; in public as a count of Cheliax, he has to perform due service to Asmodeus, his country's patron deity.8

As a patron of the Pathfinder Society, he secretly operates a Pathfinder lodge out of his manor home of Greensteeples, an act that violates laws against certain Society activity in Cheliax.23
