Bartimius grew up fast in the hard streets of New Mora's slums. He was recruited at an early age into the thieve's Guild, and then, as a teen, into the Brotherhood of Assassins.

He became one of their best. As a Rogue he acquired a significant number of spells working for an evil wizard who needed an amoral assistant. As a Master in the Thieve's Guild and an excellent 'hit' hobbit, Bartie was prosperous and doing well, when the Brotherhood of Death was ratted out by one of their disgruntled members, and he was forced to go into hiding. The stool pigeon was later murdered, it is believed by Bartimius himself.

Bartie is a blademaster, and throws knives and darts with deadly accuracy. If he can sneak up behind a victim, he can use his misericorde to kill the target. He is also a master of disguises. usually as a human child or a dwarf. He has a lot of lairs to hide in and there may be significant amounts of money (well hidden and trapped) in them.

He is vicious, amoral, and vindictive. Several people seeking to collect the rewards offered on him have disappeared or been found murdered.

The city and the Hobbit community have offered a 6000 gold piece reward for him, dead or alive. He will be hard to track down though. Most people who know anything are scared to tell anyone.

  1. Obviously, it's Mad Roy's Trollworld. There aren't any Hobbits in mine. Sounds like a nasty guy, though.
