Kingmaker - Path to Glory
Second in command of the Thorn Ford bandits
Happs is a crude and foul-mouthed man who turned to banditry after he was caught running a protection racket in Restov while also, in theory, serving as a soldier and city guard. He fled the city when he learned that the law was coming for him, abandoning a wife and two children to suffer the shame of his crimes. He’s found that banditry agrees with him—he quite enjoys the outdoors, and the occasional tumble with Kressle is nice too. He suspects that she’s working for an even more important bandit, but for now is content being the second-biggest fish in the bandit camp at Thorn Ford. As an officer in the Stag Lord’s army, Happs wears a small silver amulet shaped in the likeness of a stag’s skull—even though Happs has yet to actually meet the Stag Lord in person.
While on the road with five other bandits to Oleg’s Outpost for the purpose of extorting gold from Oleg Leveton and Svetlana Leveton, Happs encountered Dresden and the Charter Holders who ambushed him and his men. All five of his men were killed. Happs was wounded by an arrow fired by Olfina and then captured. Dresden interrogated him, politely, afterwards deciding to spare Happs’ life. At Olfina’s suggestion, the Charter Holders took Happs as a prisoner back to Oleg’s outpost in order to keep him from warning his Thorn Ford bandit brethren. However, upon arriving at Oleg’s, the Charter Holders discovered the law had finally arrived in the form of Kesten Garess who took custody of Happs.
Happs was hung by his neck until dead for crimes of banditry against the nation of Brevoy by authority of Kesten Garess.
