Lord Pait Stywryt, Duke of Black Horse, was a member of the Chisholmian nobility.

His family was quite close to that of the Duke of Rock Coast, with both families intermarrying over several generations.

During the talks which would form the Empire of Charis, he was the main agitator pushing for allotment of seats in the House of Lords to be given based upon rank of title. This would have given the Kingdom of Chisholm a stronger say in the running of the Empire. (BHD)
