Berncherd

Berncherd is a wandering member of the Eochail priesthood. Soon after his temple training, he left to learn wisdom in the wilderness and became an eremite, tending a small shrine in the woods. He lived there for many years, administering cures and advice to such travellers as sought him out, and such creatures as needed his help. During this period, he met Finovar (the Brown Man) and helped him by compounding potions for his work. In return Finovar suggested that he had an aptitude for sorcery and that he should seek to improve his knowledge. Bernchard thus travelled to Phadraig, where he entered one of the temple colleges. He found thaumaturgy most apt to his nature, and now serves the priesthood as a fashioner of buildings and items. However, his years as a recluse have made conventional temple life difficult for him. He thus travels the seven kingdoms using his skills to serve as seems best to him.

In appearance, Berncherd is broad-shouldered, with heavy, muscular shoulders, and stout legs, though his size is slightly obscure by the fact that he tends to slump somewhat. His light brown hair is cropped short, and starting to thin, and he has a wispy beard. He has large brown expressive eyes, but this is not immediately obvious, since he is not particularly easy around people, and thus tends to kept his gaze cast down. Berncherd speaks quietly and is mild mannered, although there is a hidden streak of obstinacy in him. In keeping with his temperament, he dresses plainly - wearing the brown robes of the temple with a warm, hooded cloak, and generally going barefoot, something he is used to after years of outdoor living. His only personal adornment is a silver spiral symbol of the Temple that he wears around his neck. Berncherd is no warrior - he wears no armour and carries only an iron-bound staff, trusting in his luck charm spell to keep him safe on his wanderings. He does however wear a belt bedecked with small phials and pouches of powders that he uses in his alchemy, several of which contain useful items at any one time.
