Orwaldo Norfoot was a long serving mayor of Holsmere, famous for putting the then small halfling port on the map by becoming a vassal of the Graynor Empire. A neat, business-minded halfling with a sense of pride that would often get him into trouble, Orwaldo was very traditional in manner and famous for his diet of almost solely potatoes.

Orwaldo was brought up in a very distinguished and wealthy Halfling family, and thus, was able to get a very good education, and developed a great love for literature and poetry. Orwaldo, growing slightly tired of working on the familiar slopes of Tulley decided to branch out, and left his home for the bustling trade opportunities in Valeni. He was soon taken under the wing of a Mr. Fritzgear, who offered him a job at the Fritzgear Printing Press. Working with Fritzgear, Orwaldo quickly developed business skills and became a keen trader. Before long he set up his own timber business in Alfrodul, where he resided for some time.
After some years, Orwaldo received news from his family that his elderly father had passed away, and thus, he had now became heir to the mayorship of the small farming port, Holsmere. Seizing upon the opportunity, Orwaldo moved back to his homeland with the aim of bringing the halfling race out of obsurity and reform as a prominent and distinguished race in Caerundel.
