Gunter is a Thyatian adventurer of many years’ experience, and has often been a mercenary fighting the warriors of Ylaruam in border skirmishes between the Empire and the Emirate. During his travels late in his adventuring career, he found himself in the Kingdom of Ierendi, a trade nation which reveres adventurers. He was well-known there and was lavishly entertained by the hero-worshipping population. But Gunther was not just an adventuring fighting-man: He was a man of quick wit and shrewd perception, and became a favorite guest of the aristocratic clans which rule Ierendi. Five years ago, when the Karameikan ambassador retired from diplomatic service, the Ierendi aristocrats found Schonberg to be an ideal replacement: He was a natural courtier, honest enough to protect Ierendi’s interests, and not allied with any one Ierendi clan to the detriment of the others. Since then, he’s been in Specularum, making sure trade and duties between Karameikos and Ierendi remain smooth and mutually profitable.
Schonberg is everyone’s sly and amusing uncle. He tells hilarious stories of his youth, when he was starting out as an adventurer; he defuses arguments with deft applications of wit or mockery. Common-born himself, he makes no distinctions between nobleman and commoner. He abstains from drink at court functions and large feasts, but drinks to excess with his friends. He’s a fast friend of Lord Korrigan but keeps his distance from the rest of the Duke’s family so that his interests will not conflict. He has exchanged strong words with the ambassador of the Emirate, who remembers his days of fighting against Ylaruam and has no great liking of Schonberg.
Schonberg is huge – 5’5″ and some 300 lbs., of which surprisingly little is fat. He has a thick shock of greying black hair and an enormous handlebar mustache. He wears clothing suited to the occasion, from rough travel wear to ceremonial robes, but always wears a bear-skin cloak, trophy of his accidental encounter with a wounded bear.

DMing Notes: Schonberg can be a casual encounter for the characters – he frequents Specularum taverns, especially the Black Heart Lily, and often staggers home after too much to drink; the characters could encounter him as he’s beset by robbers in the street, or could meet him carousing in taverns. He’ll speak to anyone coming to his home, from street begger to ducal messenger, and can act as a source of information on Thyatis and Ierendi.
