Arabel's Most Influential
Right Arabel, give me a list of some characters that were the most influential to Arabel as a City. Who shaped Arabel, or maybe saved Arabel so much that its people would remember them?
They can be dead or alive. They can be from any version of the server.
Who would Arabel remember in years to come?

Eliphas All the way. Don't know about saving Arabel but dang a long remembrance.

Eldaris Shadusk, always on the frontlines when there were big threats to the city. My call definitely.
Lazerus Jones/Elrilia Le'tendel/Donal/Casey/Fen/Daxton- Heroes were not out in force unless they were there.
Sir Richard Stalner
all of the slime cult- Just not in a good way
Every Red Hart knight before Caek, LaF, and My run Especially Geek's and Sir Morler
Rav, always a whisper in the background

Harold Millener and the rest of the Cassiel assassination crew.
He ran the PD's single handedly until their fall and fought much for the good and the city. Also killed the greatest bastard in CoA history (Cassiel).
Robbes Mallarme really lifted the Mages guild and their position in the west, as well as the status of the Wyverns from laughing stock to a force to be reckoned with.
Sir Emoknight and Lady Sian
Ran the courts for the Queen and fought against the Zhentarim influence in the city pretty much on their own. Sort of came out on top in the end.
Taking over Easthaven and fucking everyone over. Several times. And then overthrowing the old queen.
For sullying the good name of Torm by his repeated misdeeds and evil acts while still claiming to be legit. Not a single tormite has shown his face in town after.
The beast who ran Kilgrave for a good while, took in the Shadovar and became their symbol, was the #1 champion of lyss and feared by.. pretty much everyone. Scared a lot of people shitless during the death of Tymora thing with his return.
Anyway.. those are the people I remember.
Kreswell's certainly up there. Miyara Shadowmoon has always been a personal favorite of mine, too.

Karina Darkhaven - Founded the House of Death, which went on to be a staple in the community of Arabel for many years after the character even died.
Karl "Stoneguard" Bluebeard - Founded the Iron Anvil, which was a real force on the server for at least a year and would be remembered as a pillar of the Dwarven community in Arabel.
Trystan E' Leluath - Founded Trystan's Trade which had a huge role to play on Arabel for a good many months, more so than many people realise given his covert entanglements.

Karl "Stoneguard" Bluebeard, certainly.
Karl was one of the first characters I encountered when I started CoA and I still shiver at his aura of authority.
Also Koririn had that chosen of Tymora (don't remember name) who caused a massive movements and led groups of complete strangers into riots. Very much influence for a character that lasted only for a week or two.
Anichka Winterbourne comes to mind because she managed to convert loads of different kinds of characters, all willing to die for her.
Blackrose got most of the prominent PCs of v3 list but I'll add a few though truth be told there were so many.
Anyndil Meynn - Probably one of the most famous bards on CoA. Early v3 character
Ethan Winterbourne - One of the first knights of v3, all around badass
Zyl D'Enitor - Die hard Militia dude like Blake. Was one of the few who ever reached commander
Alisan Lightstaff - Founder of the University of Magic

No one in recent history deserves to be on this list more than Sarasha Norieth. In her time here, she had her hands in every faction in one way or another… she shaped Adam's development as a character. He would have been much different without Sarasha's influence.
