Markus Baerfaust



Captain Baerfaust is a grizzled veteran of the Averheim garrison, barracked in the city. He is a lugubrious man with a haunted look who seems to be forever grumbling and muttering. He is powerful and stocky. His grey hair is cropped short and his long moustache is kept brushed down, accentuating his already morose expression.

It would surprise many to learn that he is 38 – he looks at least a decade older, despite being physically in excellent condition. His black and yellow uniform is impressive and flashy, adorned with many honours and badges, though when he isn’t wearing it he prefers simple clothes and neutral colours.


Baerfaust is Captain of the Averheim Greatswords and de facto commander of the Averheim garrison forces, in the absence of an Elector Count. The controversial officer has found himself thrust front–and–center into the midst of Averheim politics, as he attempts to keep order amongst his soldiers and in the city he now, for better or for worse, controls in practice if not in name.
