Commander of the Crimson Tide and brother of Despair
Fear is the elder brother of Despair and also the Commander of the Crimson Tide. A cunning strategist, he is the reason of the Tides success. His tactics have put Anvilmoor’s and its surrounding waters on high alert. Only the Captain of the Crimson Tide is above him and his identity is as of yet unknown.
His latest plans haven’t completely come to fruition, so not much is known of his grand scheme. His first ploy was to send his two lieutenants, Despair and Harbek, to Heimdal to split the local guards numbers to help Despair’s group steal a boat from the harbor. Then Despair infiltrated Thames Lighthouse to douse the great flame atop it and Harbek retreated from the town to search Voluns Dungeon for an unknown artifact. While Despair’s role in the plan was cut short by our heroes intervention, it is still a mystery as to why Fear needed the lighthouse’s fire snuffed out. As far as Harbek’s part of the plan is concerned, he is currently thought deceased and the artifact lies behind large doors in the dungeon.
Recently the heroes felt the fury of Fear, who decimated the party in seconds. After the fight, he told the adventurers to free Despair or he would burn the town down in his wrath. He also took the artifact from the group before leaving them to lick their wounds. His last action was freeing his sister from Heimdal’s jail through Dagger’s persuasion of the party.
