Feringal was not considered a very effective leader, although considering Auckney's status that was not such a terrible thing. Due to his status in court, he was quite lonely; after setting his eyes on Meralda Ganderlay, he spent much effort courting her and trying to be as romantic as possible.
Feringal became lord of Auckney after the death of his parents (his father was Tristan Auck, lord of Auckney) when he was only 14 years old. He fell in love with Meralda and arranged to marry her around 1369 DR.
Feringal's older sister, Priscilla Auck, advised Feringal (whom she called "Feri") on matters of society. She heavily influenced Feringal in his rule of Auckney, since she considered the fiefdom to be properly hers. She was originally against Feringal's marriage to Meralda, in part because Meralda was a commoner and in part because of Priscilla's naturally controlling nature.
