Bernard or Berrty as he prefers to be known as. Was born into an upper middle-class family, who lived just outside of Saint Andrews. Berrty had an uneventful childhood. The only thing of note pre-twenties is Berrtys time in a university where he studied finance.
How did Berrty end up in Chernogorsk? That is a good question. It began when he was working for a private London bank. He was sent to the mysteries land. This was to scout a possible investment opportunity. As the aforementioned bank was looking into alternative locations in which to place clients money in a location where tax law may not strictly apply. The other reason for the trip was to purchase assets in the country in an attempt to influence government policy, in order to have a more western friendly government. Berrty also purchases many businesses and lots of land of the government this was to build the local economy up for when inverters start pouring into the new tax haven. The plan was to buy pre existing assets for cheap then sell them as they become more valuable.
Unfortunately for Berrty mid way through his mission, the death came.
