Bio:

Bedford was the first recruit Paul made when he opened the guild hall in Karolak. He was introduced through connections as the temple of Ezrilus and Paul sensed his minor magical talents. While he will never be a full fledged magus, his minor aptitude makes him a perfect witch-finder… someone who can detect the traces and presence of magic. This makes him ideal as a spy and security officer in the guild. He apprenticed himself to Paul and developed the ability to read simple apprentice formula as a bound apprentice. Paul always keeps him stocked with a few scrolls and can often supplement his abilities on missions with specific apprentice powers if needed.

Paul also encouraged him to formally indoctrinate himself with the faith of Exrilus. Bedford worships the goddess more as a maiden of mystery and wonder than strictly magical power. Bedford sees his magic as a strange gift and the goddess as its source.

Paul insisted he learn weapons training too – part of the credo of the stone Hand is a martial prowess unlike most other orders. He uses a spear as a staff mostly, but can go deadly if needed. He takes his job very seriously, and the guild has given him a sense of purpose and identity – he is very loyal.
