Lord Theomore Harlaw was a past Lord of Ten Towers and Harlaw Hall. He was also the head of House Harlaw. He is the great-great grandfather of the current head of the house, Lord Rodrik Harlaw. He was wed six times.
After losing three of his sons to sickness in the cradle, Theomore decided that the dampness of the ancestral Harlaw seat of Harlaw Hall was responsible. He decided to raise a new seat.
During the construction of his new seat, he changed his mind many times, and ten keeps were built. These keeps were eventually connected by bridges and walkways, and became known as Ten Towers.
