Bargle leads a gang of bandits who’ve been attacking people in the lands around Kendal Keep. A captured bandit named Drake described Bargle as a capricious, ruthless man who commands arcane power. When Drake was found dead in his cell the next morning, without a mark on his body, Castellan Devereau had no choice but to take that claim seriously…
Bargle was Macsen Wledig’s wizard, and it’s widely believed that his treachery is the real reason that the lord never came home to Kendal Keep.
