"Sickness is wont to fester and spread. It must be burned out ere the infection takes hold."
Orphaned when his parents perished in a fire, Ser Charibert spent his childhood and adolescence in a priest's orphanage in the Brume. There, he whiled away the hours learning how to read and write, immersing himself in holy scripture and governance under the Articles of Halonic Polity. He was particularly interested in the arcane elements of scripture, having discovered as a child his own latent talents for conjuring flames.
When he came of age, his former teacher provided him with an official reccommendation to enter the Supreme Sacred Tribunal of Halonic Inquisitory Doctrine. Coincidentally, at roughly the same time, his childhood orphanage was gutted by a fire of unknown origin.
A former inquisitor with a sadistic streak, Ser Charibert is perhaps best known for his ruthless persecution of heretics and his brutal interrogations, which often ended in the conviction and execution of the accused. As such, Ser Charibert—not unlike Ser Grinnaux—is an unusual addition to the Heavens' Ward. However, the inherent grace with which he wields magic (a skill likely perfected during the extended sessions with his prisoners) is unparalleled, and it is for this talent alone he was inducted into the archbishop’s personal guard.
Ser Charibert the Stern wields the staff Widowbreaker.
