Lord of House Bael
Kurtis fought in the War of the Usurper and gained recognition and respect for his deeds. He struggles to maintain his vast lands as they are sparsely populated, mountainous and near to the Wall.
Lord Kurtis is always looking to expand House Bael's powerbase and influence, he wants the house to be established as independent & self sustaining. He has seen the effects of war firsthand and wants his family to be as strong as possible should the Wildlings attack.
Kurtis fathered a bastard son during his reckless youth but took full responsibility for the child. It was the shock of siring a bastard that spurred him on to assume more responsibility and lordship of his domains.
