Errr, yes. English's not my language, you know :-).

Yes, it's a possibility. I'm sure Bert is quite crazy himself anyway, after 15 years of outlawry.

Bert and his goons killed everyone in the stead at that moment, so they killed Erissa, Gunther and Miriel's brothers. Her brothers were innocent.

Yes, that seems appropiate. It doesn't matter too much though, since everybody but Bert was killed afterwards, and they were all outlaws, so we don't have clan politics here. What's more, at the moment of Miriel's initiation everybody thinks that all of the outlaws were killed anyway, so they don't even have to hunt down anyone.

She seems quite interested in having this kind of character. Actually, she didn't ask me specifically for a Babeester Gori, just for an "unhappy sacred agent of vengeance". When I talked about Babeester Gor to her, she said "that's what I'm looking for".
