Heroes of the Everflame
Bendrix the Mad
Archivist of Thassilon
According to legend, Bendrix started life as a pirate and trader, and after stealing what was not a score of gold but rather books, fell in love with reading. Bendrix continued his life of a privateer to fund his reading obsession. Bendrix fell in love with learning – from the histories of the Church of Pharasma to the Rise of the Thassilonian Runelords, he could never learn enough.
Eventually, Bendrix was captured and hanged, but his insatiable thirst for knowledge allowed him to survive death by becoming an walking skeleton. When the runelords fled the starstone, Bendrix retreated beneath Kaer Maga to the Undercity with all of the books and tomes that he could find. He has spent the millennia since collecting all the articles of knowledge that he can to add to his collection.
Bendrix recently encountered Ug the Invincible and the Heroes of the Everflame during their trial in the Godsmouth Ossuary. Bendrix revealed that he had read about Ug’s arrival and warned him of his impending trial.
