Captain Brackenbrook is a prominent character who but only wants peace and well-being for his fellows of Archet. However, he does not like to think ill of people and is very set in his ways, making for dire consequences when he chooses to trust Calder Cob, his best soldier, over his own son, Jon Brackenbrook, whom he exiled three years ago for "behaving like a jealous child." During the assault on Archet, you, Jon and Atli Spider-bane battle through the Blackwolds and reach him, only to witness his tragic murder at the hands of Calder Cob himself as the Cargûl summon Amdir to their side.
After the assault, the villagers of Archet have high praises for the sacrifice that the Captain has made. There are ideas of raising a statue for him once the town has been rebuild.
