Sir Schwarz was once guardian of the palace gates. He was renowned for his steadfast resolve, combative prowess, and unflinching adherence to any orders given. Thus, when the green horde descended on the capital, Sir Schwarz guarded his gate, and only his gate. The palace was ransacked via the other three gates, but in front of the eastern portcullis a vast mound of zombie corpses served as a new bulwark. Some believe that Sir Schwarz is a kind of golem. He is never seen without his armor, never seems to sleep, and can sustain truly shocking wounds with no apparent debility.
