Curse of the Crimson Throne
A handsome, broad-shouldered man with a winning smile
A former Korvosan Guard Sergeant, Verik was also the lover of Vimanda Arkona. At her suggestion, he deserted the Guard at the outbreak of riots and set up shop at All the World’s Meat, where his underlings did their best Sweeney Todd impression. After Zandu revealed their crimes to him, he turned himself in.
Due to the plague-related short-handedness of the Guard, Verik is currently alternating between the Citadel brig and guard duty outside Cressida’s makeshift evidence room.
