Legate Minister Caudecus Beetlestone the Wise is the charismatic Legate Minister of Krytan ministry. As legate minister, he holds the ministry's highest office and wields considerable power over and through the Ministry Guard. A carnival in his name has also won him favor with a number of the citizens. In addition to his activities in Divinity's Reach, Caudecus is credited with the expansion of Beetletun, home to both his own mansion and a statue of himself. His carnivals have allowed him to amass a fortune, allowing him to keep Beetletun safe from harm.
His wife died several years ago, leaving his only family to be his daughter, Demmi Beetlestone.
With his experience and popularity, Caudecus has emerged as a rival of Queen Jennah, whose egalitarian rule, truce with the charr, and reign during years of battle have eroded her support among the nobility. He is also rumored to have dealings with bandits.

- "Asura/Sylvari, if you're satisfying your curiosity about our kingdom's inner workings, you should visit the Chamber of Ministers. My schedule does not accommodate trivialities."
- All right.
