Seeds of Corruption
Captain Marcus Baerfaust
Commander of Averheim Guard
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.
Rickard Aschaffenberg mentioned Baerfaust in passing, saying that he was the commander of the Averheim garrison and de-facto authority in the city, since the Elector Count died 2 years ago at the Third Battle of Blackfire Pass
Baerfaust and his men do the best they can to keep the city in order, limit crime, and fight corruption. Sadly they are all overworked, understaffed, and underpaid.
