Baldrig Skaarim is a former Knight of the Chalice and veteran of several battles in Infernus. For a time, he was institutionalized as a result of the horrors he witnessed in the lower planes, and was deemed to have made a full recovery less than a year before Minister Heraldrus took over the asylum. He is a close friend of Minister Taenaran and despite having not seen eachother in twenty years, the two regularly communicate through letters.
Lord Skaarim is a large and well built man, even at his advanced age. He serves as the eldest lord, although he does little of the decision making, leaving that to the younger Lord Vollund and Lady Wynst.
