Biography Edit

Background Edit

"Divergent Paths" (2x25) Edit

A group of dark figures (likely Dwelma, Protto, Ruzza, and Wohn) attacked Fjord, Jester, and Yasha when they moved away from the rest of the Mighty Nein camping for the night. The attack made no noise. After a struggle, Fjord, Jester, and Yasha were all bound and gagged. The Iron Shepherds dragged them to Lorenzo to show off their catches then locked them in cages. The carts with the cages continued along the road.

"Found & Lost" (2x26)Edit

Beauregard, Caleb, Keg, Molly, and Nott ambushed the Iron Shepherds on the Glory Run Road. During the battle, Ruzza cast Hypnotic Pattern and Hold Person spells on the party, but they were able to resist her.
