Thierry throws himself into the job of managing the colony, taking it both as a sacred duty and a family obligation. He spend his mornings, after mass, dealing with colony affairs : meeting colonists, assessing land, talking to church representatives or civic leaders. He also attends militia and army training sessions as a participant, to hone his fighting skills and to learn to fight as part of a unit. He takes special care to meet as often as he can with his fellow Rostlandir, seeking their advice and offering his own in regards to their own problems. Conraed is almost always at his side during these duties, and the colonists have started using the expression "baron's man", some with a nod and others with a wink.
As the barony expands and experiences some growing pains, he will start doing monthly rides into the countryside, through the farms to Leveton and back, to make his presences felt by all and to help the colonists find solutions to their problems. He will also take the time to visit his goddaughter and the various bondsmen who chose to remain in Hartfell after their year was done.
His afternoons are spent in his farmland he was assigned by the early lottery at the start of the colony. There he removes stones from his field and builds a bard and paddock, with a mind to eventually use the land to begin raising horses again. He dismisses any claims of this being below a baron with a wave. "It's my duty to contribute in a tangible way to Hartfell. And I have to get the family business running again."
Recently, the baron has ordered some books from Restov, notably some pious tomes and histories of the noble families of Brevoy. He's also asked Tamarie to compile a formal family tree of the Mareschals, if she has the spare time (and when she's in a good mood of course).
