Barconius is a Battle Cleric of Iomedae who serves as the Sergeant at Arms of Castle Firrine. In this role he is both the castle Stewart & drill sergeant responsible for training of the castle’s garrison of soldiers.
Barconius is a battle tested war veteran who has been tasked with the training of troops at Castle Firrine. During times when the Council Members are in the field it falls to him to oversee the day to day operations of the castle. This suits him just fine as Barconius’ family have been serving at Castle Firrine for generations and it would surely have fallen to Orc hands by now if not for his vigilance.
Barconius is frequently seen in the Castle’s courtyard training with both young and old soldiers on their weapon skills and physical conditioning exercises. He is an excellent leader of troops and well respected as such. Lord Mortekei has been quoted as stating Castle Firrine would not still be standing without Barconius’ leadership and tactical skill. Barconius has even won respect of the rough edged Dorryn who has put more than one Dwarven Battlerager on guard duty for disrespecting the man.
As a WarPriest of the Temple of Iomedae, Barconius would rather spend more time training the troops or manning the castle’s defenses than attending priestly duties at the temple. However until an actual priest of Iomedae sets up shop at Castle Firrine it is his obligation to host regular services to keep up the morale of the faithful.
This character is a more cooperative version of Jeor Mormont from Game of Thrones, or a Ronnie Shaw from Fallout 4.
