Bertrand was Tigre's loyal attendant and caretaker. Serving under House Vorn for two generations, under both Urs and Tigre respectively, Bertrand's loyalty and tenacity was parallel to none. Prior to Brune's Civil War, Bertrand often gave his full support to Tigre in almost every campaign he participated in until he sacrificed himself to save Tigre from Steid's attack.
Bertrand is an old yet strong man in his golden age. He appeared to be half-bald and also have a beard around his chin.
As a loyal aide of the House of Vorn, Bertrand would do anything to protect its legacy. Like his fellow Alsace residents, Bertrand's devotion to both Urs and Tigre were so high that he was willing to give his life away for their safety. Because of his loyalty to the Vorn Family, Bertrand became one of the most prominent allies to any of Tigre's friends and allies.
Bertrand is also a sociable person, whose words were both sweet and friendly, and he loved to hang out with his peers by playing games during leisure times.
Bertrand was a loyal attendant under Urs of Alsace for decades. When Urs passed away and Tigre has became the newest Earl of Alsace, Bertrand vowed to his late master that he will watch and protect Tigre by any means necessary. Since that day, Bertrand acted as the new Earl of Alsace's mentor figure along with Mashas.
Bertrand joined Brune's 25,000-strong army to repel the invading Zhcted Army led by Eleonora Viltaria at Dinant Plains. At the camp, Bertrand and Tigre were mocked heavily by Zion Thenardier until Mashas came to intervene. Like Mashas and others, Bertrand narrowly survived the onslaught and he reported to Titta about Tigre's capture and a hefty ransom for his release.
Battle For Alsace Edit

Bertrand managed to reach Leitmeritz, but he was caught by Rurick and Leitmeritz soldiers, in order to convince that he's on Leitmeritz to meet Tigre, he asked them to bring Tigre over for evidence. To his relief, Bertrand saw Tigre was alive and so are Tigre to see Bertrand is also alive. However, their reunion was short-lived when Bertrand told the bad news to Tigre and gave Mashas's letter as proof, much to Tigre's shock and anger. While witnessing Elen's attempt to prevent him from leaving, Bertrand and everyone else present were shocked to see Tigre requesting the aid of Elen's troops to defend Alsace, which Elen agreed with Alsace as her compensation. Together with Tigre and his new ally, Bertrand rode his stead for Alsace.
Bertrand and Rurick made to Alsace just in time to avoid the Thenardier Army from destroying Alsace. Bertrand also took part in Tigre and Elen's battle at Molsheim Plains, where he was heavily geared with quivers, causing him to slightly complain about the burden of the equipment and of course making Elen also feel bad about Bertrand to keep Tigre supplied with arrows while unable to fight because of his gear full with quiver. Nevertheless, he was relieved when Tigre and Elen would be his cover during the battle. In the course of the battle, Bertrand also witnessed Tigre's victorious duel over Zion Thenardier.
