Curse of the Crimson Throne
Renegade Guard Sergeant
Verik Vancaskerkin thought he was helping people by following the advice of Vimanda Arkona and handing out free meat to the common people. However, under his watch, the other Guard defectors under him started a mercenary side business and began handing out the human meat alongside the beef and pork. Upon being shown evidence of this, Verik allowed himself to be arrested, and is currently awaiting trial for desertion. He also let slip that the idea behind his free-meat program and his lack of faith in the Queen initially came from Vimanda Arkona, his lover.
