Halflings are led by a pillar of their society - the Chief Sheriff or head of what passes for a law-enforcement body amongst Halflings: the Sheriffs. A cynic might say these worthies are more adept at extorting protection money from traders and farmers than they are at dealing with miscreants. None-the-less they are the only representatives of authority that Halflings have, and it can’t be an easy job, can it? There are also clan chiefs, wealthiest of the clan.
There is also trickery afoot. A Fortune Teller is a wizardly-type. Halfling Fortune Tellers may be a deft hand when it comes to manipulating cards and heaven-knows whether they are complete charlatans or genuine workers of magic - it is best not to ask.
