With Marquis Ford Kennex's assassination, it is expected that Lady Octavia Kennex become the new Marquessa of Stormward. Ford does have a son of four years old, Darion Kennex, who was named heir- but with that young, and the lack of others in the same generation, it is largely expected that the title passes back to the eldest sister Octavia, who would decide whether to rule with Darion as her own heir (as she is unmarried and has no children that could potentially contest down the line), or in a regency until he comes of age. Unless other Kennexes contest, the decision is largely hers, and while it would be unusual for a ruling peer to hold the title of Chief Magistrate as well, there's precedent for it.
