Shah is an older man but has worn well. Like most nobles in the Commonweal he acted as kin-obligate to the child of another family: Salme Dien in this case. Also like most nobles he lost family members in the Twelve Year War: his daughter Daless.
Empire in Black and GoldEdit
Salma addresses a short letter to Shah before heading out of Collegium as one of Stenwold's agents.
Salute the DarkEdit
Shah holds an audience for Stenwold after he has come to visit to ask for aid, bringing another letter from Salma. Even as he thanks Sten for the letter and all of the help that the Beetle provided to Salma, Felipe Shah is unable to offer aid in return, passing that request onto his Lady, Inaspe Raimm.
Heirs of the BladeEdit
Upon returning and finding another lowlander in his town, Shah goes to visit unofficially to find out who it is. He listens to Tynisa tell of his kin-obligate's life and achievements before returning. The next day he sends advice that she should leave.
