Ahstell Ibbet was a Corisandian citizen and blacksmith.

A brother and a nephew of his died in the Battle of Darcos Sound. In the Charisian invasion and takeover of the princedom, he lost his eldest son in the siege of Talbor Pass and the youngest in the Battle of Green Valley.

Deeply grieved, he became a member of the Northern Conspiracy. He allowed his smithy to be used to conceal weapons, and planned to join the ranks of the armed band that would seize control of Lian.

After the planned revolt was spoiled by Merlin Athrawes, Master Ibbet was brought before the courts and sentenced to death for assisting in treason. However, Empress Sharleyan instantly pardoned him of all his crimes, and ordered him to return to his life. (HFAF)
