The Orphans of Cathorna
Jus' th' gatekeep'r, is all. Safe travels, an' moind them wolves now.
Usually called the Gatekeeper, Klud is a blow-in who settled some five years ago. Aged in his thirties, nobody knows much about him, other than that he was heavily concussed when he was found deep in the hills, was wearing high quality but heavily damaged armour emblazoned with a white hand, and the only thing he could say for the first week was ‘Klud’. Despite healing well and regaining the bulk of his faculties, he still remembers nothing of his past. Chaudra says his accent is Southern Gondor, possibly Morthondost. He was clearly a soldier in a large army, and has shown some skill with a spear and javelins. Possessed only of martial skills, he gets by working the fields and guarding crops, in addition to taking command of the gatehouse in times of trouble. He drills his platoon in pole-arm fighting and keeps an eye on the state of the fortifications, such as they are. He smokes more than most, and always has a good stash of tobacco in the gatehouse. Partial to witticisms, some do not appreciate his dry observations when they traverse the gate.
