From the Hold of Belkzen, Bart grew up as a simple farmer’s lad. Days before receiving his Hope Knife in an ancient tradition, his homestead was attacked by an orc war band. In a move that wasn’t necessarily the bravest (though the smartest), the young man fled; wandering until he came under the care of Zakkariak Thundershot. With his twenty-fourth nameday having come and gone, his training with Master Thundershot has concluded. Still, like his master, he carries both cudgel and crossbow upon his hip and back.
