Red Hand of Doom
Sertieren the Red
This halfling looks as though he might have stepped from the pages of an illustrated history of wizards. With a long black beard, a robe stitched with stars and moons, a staff set with a fossilized raven, a pointed hat, spectacles, and a disheveled mop of hair, Sertieren would stand out even among other wizards.
Sertieren came to the Green Apple to offer his thanks to the Heroes of Drellin’s Ferry for clearing Vraath Keep of goblinoids. When Thistle inquired who “the Lion” might be, the halfling sage recalled that the last king of Rhest was called that, and offered to research him for the pixie.
Later Sertieren and his halfling clan, the Shadowbanks, offered the heroes refuge at their encampment outside the Sarthel harvest fair.
