Obey your Oracle
Wow, I'm actually a little surprised Zeldane would have a family. He just seems a little too bloodthirsty to hold such ties.
But I suppose he's teamed up with the right person to get at this Vicar person. The name alone sounds like someone that would be surrounded by a group of people that could take Zeldane down.
His armored keeper certainly could get Zeldane close with how easily they got into Winsley tower. And from this we know deathknight here can certainly dish it out from how easily they put Zeldane on the ground.
But he killed off his own nephew earlier.
To be fair, Zeldane gave Garrett a mercy killing compared to what Zysa had planned. We actually discussed what would be the quickest method of killing prior to that scene, so the behind the neck stab was to severe his spinal cord - minimizing suffering.
That doesn't mean anything, really. It's very possible to be willing to die for some of your family but to not care one whit about other branches of your family. Maybe your dad's brother is an alcoholic and he raised his son to be a horrible person who tries to use your goodwill to help him commit crimes; maybe you just have philosophical differences and have lived apart from parts of your family for years.
For example, I haven't seen my great-aunt, nor her kids, nor any of those kids' families, for 7 years; and, even though they're technically my cousins by blood, I've got no real emotional attachment to this Jewish family I barely know that lives 120 miles away from me. (That said, there's no bad blood between us and I definitely would still be cordial if they tried to reconnect, and it's DEFINITELY not the sort of situation Zeldane is in, but it still serves as an example.)
Oooh, Zeldane has more layers to him than originally thought. I'm super curious about his past now.
so the guy in armor is like a mini boss?
