Ephra Stein

Nessa’s brother has taken somewhat of a back seat since his sister’s ascension into the business world and subsequent peerage. A seemingly quiet family man, mysteriously eight years ago it was he who controlled the Stein Group before stepping aside, and now he often feels overshadowed and disempowered by his sister’s brilliance. He too has secrets from his past, as well as very real ones that he will go to any lengths to keep concealed and protect those he loves. But are Ephra’s actions borne out of love and loyalty? Or do they originate from a darker, more twisted place that secretly harbours ill-will against those closest to him? Only time will tell…
