She once worked at the Shademore Home for Children. When gifted children expressed an interest in learning the ways of the Adventurer, she would claim that she could guide them toward their ambition. However, after seeking her help, the children would either turn up handicapped or would disappear and never be heard from again.
Mother Gerd survived the orphanage fire and is now rumored to live in a hut somewhere at the edge of the kingdom, in or near Blithewood. People who aspire to the Adventurer’s life are often sent to seek the guidance of Mother Gerd, but just like in her days at the orphanage, they are often never heard from again.
During an intense battle with the Company of the Black Wagon on Aprantus 25th, 2010, the evil Mother Gerd met her demise. Evidence of her complicity with slavers outside the realm of Ardwen was found in her abode by the company.
