Baron Kelbor was a powerful Honethite noble who had tried kill Varana's son. However, Bethra had entertained him and discerned this information and informed Varana. Kelbor later gave the order to have Bethra killed, and Silk had a chat with him, entering the well-guarded Baron Kelbor's house via rooftop. Before Kelbor died, he gave up this information and that a Mallorean with a black beard (i.e., Harakan) tipped off the Honnethites about Bethra's activities.
