Brothers of the Tor
The low born peasant lover of Heward Birch
Bertie is a relatively unassuming young woman who lives in the Birchkeep lands. Despite her plain looks however she won the eyes of Heward Birch, the heir to the Birchkeep lands who then began an affair with the peasant girl. Upon learning of this scandal Thomas Birch, Hewards father and the Lord of Birchkeep forbade Heward from seeing her again and banished her from the town. She has since been living in a small village north of Birchkeep with some family. When questioned by Arandur Nightwalker and Jonas Rockhold Bertie informed the Tor-men that she was still seeing Heward Birch but had not had a visit from him in over a week.
