- "You think Turomont would look into changing the law? Usually I have to wheedle and grant all kinds of concessions before he'll so much as ask his clerks to look up precedents. He's the stickiest of the conservatives."
- —King Jonathan refering to Duke Turomont in the matter of changing an unfair law.[src]
Duke Turomont of Wellam was the Lord Magistrate and the chief examiner of the pages around the time when Keladry of Mindelan was a page. Duke Turomont is married and has several children as well as grandchildren. His great-nephew is Sacherell of Wellam.
He is strict concerning the law and behaviour in his courtroom. He is also a conservative and doesn't like changes, least of all changes in existing law.
Duke Turomont appears in Page as the chief examiner of the pages. There he decides on behalf of Kel to let her take the big examinations alone after the normal date because she couldn't attend for the reason that her maid, Lalasa Isran, had been kidnapped. He later appears again in chapter eight of Squire. There he is the judge in the trial for Joren of Stone Mountain, who was found responsible for the kidnapping of Lalasa. He was also present to instruct Keladry of Mindelan in the code of chivalry and sit with her through her vigil to make sure it wasn't interfered with.
