The Two Banner War: Part Two
Died April 13, FoA 201
Gaeryth Stonecloak was a Sentinel and a close ally of Beric. Gaeryth accompanied Beric to Demara after the Wanderers were given their titles, and followed him back to Belagere when Beric left to fight the War of the Realms. When Ajani Baran (Ne’Arel) was stripped of his power after the Peleari city of Gwareth fell to the Lugzan, Gaeryth was the only one of the Sentinels who did not later regret his decision to relieve Ne’Arel of his cloak and prism. When Beric left his war camp outside Corullon to accompany Pyxidi Finien, Jim Picardspock, Warden Thorn, Gawain Blise, Bart Wilhelm and Ceasok to Demara, Gaeryth Stonecloak was placed in chief command of the camp and all its forces. On April 13, FoA 201, there was a gathering in the main tent of the camp. Warden, Gawain, “Jim”, Ceasok and Bart brought Ne’Arel and Aelem to the camp to reveal that “Jim” was in fact a doppelganger and to attempt to convince Gaeryth to back the other Sentinels in revealing that the pact was founded on a lie. Gaeryth, angered by these revelations, threw a knife at Aelem, hitting him in the heart. He then attacked “Jim” with the intent to kill him, but Ne’Arel brought Gaeryth to the ground. A fight ensued which culminated in Ne’Arel cutting Gaeryth’s throat. The death of Gaeryth Stonecloak marks the first time a Sentinel has come to blows with another Sentinel, much less killed one.
