Gene Hasselblad is a minor noble of De Lustigan family line. He is an inveterate gambler who often finds himself indebted to friends and acquaintances. He is currently serving as squire to the renowned Forstrang Beran.
While he was involved in the recent fracas at the Stag and Crown, he calmly faced the giant orc with blade in hand, and even though defeated, did not back down before the enemy.
He has since died, off in the wild lands of the North. He showed bravery, even heroism during his final moments, but this averted not his death. Six other companions on the quest shared his fate. Forstrang Beran, Yazzi, Cedric Krogman, and Vance Olson survived to return to civilization.
