Bounty Hunter minimap icon.png Gondar, the Bounty Hunter
When the hunted tell tales of Gondar the Bounty Hunter, none are sure of which are true. In whispered tones they say he was abandoned as a kit, learning his skill in tracking as a matter of simple survival. Others hear he was an orphan of war, taken in by the great Soruq the Hunter to learn the master's skill with a blade as they plumbed the dark forests for big game. Still others believe he was a lowly street urchin raised among a guild of cutpurses and thieves, trained in the arts of stealth and misdirection. Around campfires in the wild countryside his quarry speaks the rumors of Gondar's work, growing ever more fearful: they say it was he who tracked down the tyrant King Goff years after the mad regent went into hiding, delivering his head and scepter as proof. That it was he who infiltrated the rebel camps at Highseat, finally bringing the legendary thief White Cape to be judged for his crimes. And that it was he who ended the career of Soruq the Hunter, condemned as a criminal for killing the Prince's prized hellkite. The tales of Gondar's incredible skill stretch on, with each daring feat more unbelievable than the last, each target more elusive. For the right price, the hunted know, anyone can be found. For the right price, even the mightiest may find fear in the shadows.

Lord Sunbreeze is willing to pay handsomely to anyone who was able to return his daughter to him alive... which is somewhat unfortunate because 'Dead' is significantly easier for me. Oh well, the customer is always right. Looks like it's time to hunt a fairy.

The Second Disciple[]

While Gondar learned a great deal from Soruq, the master hunter also took a second disciple, whose name is unknown. Between the three, a sacred trust was forged. Yet, it was the second disciple who ultimately betrayed Soruq, stealing his secrets, and bringing them to an army of infidels. Angered by this, Gondar set aside his normal duties, and went on the hunt.[20] Enlisting in the infidel army, Gondar tracked down the second disciple, and killed him. Then, using the traitor's own blade, Gondar assassinated the general of the infidel army, and brought the organization to an end.[21]
