When the Hero of Neverwinter arrived, Gate Captain Ergus urged the Hero to look for Walters -- if the adventurer was going to stick his neck out anyways. When the Hero not only rescued Walters but also ended the zombie infestation, Ergus was very pleased. He was not, however, happy that a Yuan-Ti had been loosed in the city and was furious with the leadership of Neverwinter for allowing such a terrible thing to occur.
- "A smartly dressed and ordered militia captain. He shares the weary look of those under him, however. The plague is a strain on everyone." (Ch. 1)
