With unkept hair and beard of an inky darkness, he would guess from his mother’s heritage, Bertholdt stands tall, very tall, at 6’4”, and powerful, his athletic build clearly showing under the simple and used dark grey woolen traveler’s garment he wears. His skin is tan and shows the subtle signs of numerous fights.

He bears no visible weapon or armor, but for the spear he carries when expecting trouble, and gives the impression of having run out of luck. His eyes are filled with a great sadness, though a careful look at his deep blue eyes will show a fire and a passion fueled by some higher purpose.

Bertholdt has a keen sense of perception and doesn't miss much. He is trained in the art of reading holistic body movements and micro-expressions in the face.

He fills the slow days with meditation and physical training. He enjoys Chelaxian tobacco and Taldan wine.

“ Ah! ‘Tis but a twist of the fates, that among the children, one had to be so sick that nothing could be done with it. Lord Maddargein, utterly displeased at the prospect of not having twelve, young ones for his ritual, sent me, his feral but efficient servant, to find him suitable boys. That’s how I met Bertholdt.”

“Suffice to say, Bertholdt was even more of a pain when the Lord alluded to his Plan. He walked up to the Lord and managed to convince him to set him free, and he would bring back two to replace him! A boy! Believe it or not, Lord Maddargein actually smiled, and let the boy out. Of course, I was sent after him...”

“Believe it or not, the little man delivered on his promise. Poor things figured a little late what we were up to!”

”Anyway, too bad the ritual didn’t work after all. Lord Maddargein did a poor job of slaughtering those boys. He was still learning at the time...”

“Anyhow, my Lord was much impressed and decided to school the child to hunt the city for ritual material. And quite a hunter he became! After only two years, Lord Maddargein would only send him on the hunt, allowing me to finally focus on other important duties...”

“If you ask me, Bertholdt grew restless with the years, though Lord Maddargein didn’t notice it, I could see it in his eyes. He was growing old and wondering.”

“He simply left one day. He just wasn’t cut for the job... Just how did you find me by the way?!”
Excerpt from the testimony of Reginald Saldeod
High court of Caliphas

Bertholdt spent his youth collecting boys for a fanatic murderer, and the rest of his life making amends for his crime. After he left, he swore he would bring Maddargein to justice. He had figured Maddargein was undead and approached Pharasmans to learn more. The Lady of Graves offered more than knowledge. He found solace and purpose in the Cult, but his need for vengeance and atonement, kept him from joining the priesthood. He learned in his own way, and used his knowledge to chase Maddargein out of Caliphas, but then he lost its track. He kept hunting hunters and gathering information on Maddargein, connecting with Professor Lorrimer.
