Fighter's Guild warrior
A hardened veteran of the Fighters’ Guild, Black Dog recieved his memorable nickname years ago for reasons long forgotten. He is a valued member of the guild, even though he is prone to over-indulgence in ale.
Black Dog came across the party while they were cornered by Griffon thugs and very likely saved their lives. He had met them once before, though, on a secret contract from the Guild to watch over their post on the day of King Gromnir Ironbrow’s assassination. He is one of the few people who believe that they are innocent, and wants to see them escape Fire Den despite the massive rewards issued by the Guild for their capture.
