Fighting the Dark
Powerful wizard that ran a mine to the west which was staffed by some misunderstood folks. Long history with Parn concerning the killing of his family to save Gerd’s life.
As Marin and Raden listen, they learn that at one time in the past Parn saved Gerds from his parents and brother. While Gerds is glad to be alive, he feels that Parn did not have to use overwhelming force and kill his family. Gerds screams in frustration and sets the ruby on the table and magicks himself out of the room.
