Bogdan the Blacksmith
Dour blacksmith of Sothmere.
Bogdan is the second most important man in Sothmere behind Sheriff Milo. As the village blacksmith, Bogdan ensures that the tools needed to cultivate the ryott are in good supply as well as keeping the horses that take the grain to markets properly shoed. Bogdan is a hard man who holds a long-standing grudge against Sheriff Milo for marrying Magda, whom hecourted in his youth. If given enough to drink, Bogdan might let slip that he wouldn’t mind seeing some horror befall the sheriff, as if losing his wife to disease was not enough. Bogdan treats his own wife and children with indifference.
