In the Service of the Queen
Born in a Rhy’Bear tribe in the Icebinder Mountains, Bertio was trained as a warrior. His tribe fought the Shadowspawn that lurked in those mountains, and Bertio was a skilled fighter. However, he also had an inborn and uncontrolled talent for Shaping—cold shaping, water shaping, even weather shaping. He was discovered by a traveler from Aldis, who he Rhy-bonded with. He traveled to Aldis with his Rhy-Bond and studied at Aldin schools, learning more about his Shaping powers, as well as Aldin knowledge. While at school, he developed a friendly rivalry with Agormenion.
Eventually, he joined the Sovereign’s Finest under Commander Osric.
