Chorre Esmonde (SHAWR EHZ-muhnd) is a deceased supporting character in Metal Shadow. He was Aralkad Esmonde's brother and Lloyde Esmonde's uncle. He joined the family on their flight from the Sixth-Seventh conflict. Despite being confined to a wheelchair, he had a sunny disposition.
He dies from a mysterious ailment while Lloyde is meeting him in his hospital bed. His seat on Deep Kuralle's directorial board was made open before then, and many people were vying for it. Some say his faling ill was an assassination attempt by one of the colony's Seventh Sky newcomers; Lloyde accused the head Shepherdist of being the culprit, though he regretted making the accusation afterward.
