Hunter of Anvil Crawler Brake, Eastern Daramis (Killed by PCs)
Bertram has brown hair worn in a matted mess on a head sporting a patchy beard and full goatee. His mud and leaf piece covered leather and fur clothing covers his darkly tanned skin. He looks very sharp and alert, even for a hunter, and he has clearly spent much time staying active given his frame.
He routinely wears studded leather armor and carries a long bow with arrows, a short sword and a dagger as weapons. He tends to carry pocket currency of Ailead.
Bertram Garret was known to congregate with other members of a cult in and around the coastal caves as well as around other areas of Anvil Crawler Brake. After attacking the huntmaster of Ailead, Ishak al’Derya, a bounty was placed on Garret’s head. Many hunters took up the cause for the exceptional reward posted.
Bertram and his group, the Mouth of Chaos Cult, were tracked to their hideout in the Mouth of Chaos by Avaniel Cerelion, Jozan, and the camel companion Jang. Avaniel confronted Bertram in the coastal cave where he confessed to attacking the huntmaster of Ailead after believing he would attempt to kill him. He reasoned that the huntmaster thought he would contact the Tribunal Republic in Ailead whom might send for the Royal Alchemy Society based in Western Daramis.
Bertram then asked if Avaniel could hear the voices of the cave. Both Avaniel and Jozan, who was hidden, attempted to listen to the voices the cult spoke of. Both were able to hear noises that seemed like a congregation of voices and thoughts, revealing that the hunters spoke truth and were not the victims of madness. Upon listening more and relinquishing a degree of control, Jozan was able to focus on a single, more powerful voice among the thrall. In very broken words and fragments of sentences, it described itself to something as “supreme in this realm” and “linked to death as the very characters that make it’s title”.
Deeming the group dangerous, Avaniel and Jozan engaged the cult. During the brief skirmish, Jozan noted that an eagle he had summoned with his magic appeared to decay, molt and melt slightly in the cave’s inside before reaching the end of its appointed service time. The battle ended with three members of the cult and Bertram dead.
