The Last Wanderers of Solomon Kane
Baron Von Staler
Black Forest Noble
Von Staler was once a noble lord who cared little for which religion a man followed and would offer sanctuary to any who asked. However, during a hunt he was thrown from his horse and blow to his head robbed him of his sight. His blindness changed the man as the world was dark to him so was his heart. He became cruel even torturing the horse he blamed for his affliction. He dismissed his servants and Von Staler became a hermit in his fortress with no one save his men-at-arms.
Many years ago Solomon Kane confronted Von Staler and the cruelty. During the struggle between the two men actually restored the Baron’s sight. Von Staler turned on his own captain who after slaying fell down stone stairs breaking his spine and ending his cruel reign.
