The Bernhard Family is a forgotten line of red-headed nobles who rose to power through mercenary assistance in the crusades. Much of the family’s wealth was squandered on the first castle of Valachia, a fortress that was known as Castle Bernhard.
Though the construction, and existence of Castle Bernhard is unquestionably mentioned and affirmed throughout all documents in Valachia’s History, scholars of today cannot seem to find the precise location of where the castle would have stood, and there seems to be little physical evidence of any such construction existing in Valachia. Though, there are rumors of a geographically impossible castle flitting in and out of existence within the Forest of Eternal Night.
Like the fortress that broke the family’s wealth, there is no current day trace of the Bernhard Family. It is believed that Walter Bernhard and Carmilla Bernhard were the last two members of the family. The former having sold the castle to escape family debt, and the later being devastated with the loss of her gardens to the point of a deathly sickness.
