WarDragon's Way of the Wicked
Sergeant Tomas Blackerly
A fat, greedy, and amoral man who served as the leader of the guards at Branderscar Prison, Blackerly gained and held that post primarily by virtue of being an excellent liar. He took almost as much pleasure in putting heated brands to the prisoners’ flesh as he did in using the position to line his own pockets. He skimmed off the prison’s budget, ran illegal card games for guards while on duty, and sold contraband whiskey. Blackerly’s corruption weakened the prison’s infamously “unbreakable” security enough for the villains who would later become the Nessian Knot to escape, killing him in the process.
