Dragon Age: Rise of the Runelords
Sheriff Belor Hemlock
This large powerful man routinely shaved his dark head and wears light armor for most of his duties. His manner is quite at first as he woudl prefer to talk matters out than exacerbate with bluster but if railed be ware his wraith!
Belor Hemlock is the sheriff of the Varisian town of Sandpoint. He replaced the previous sheriff, Casp Avertin, who was killed by serial killer Chopper in 4702 AR.1 Originally a member of the Shriikirri-Quah tribe of the Shoanti, Belor abandoned his heritage when he took on the role of sheriff, changing his last name from its native Viskalai to the Chelish translation of Hemlock, much to the dismay of his brother Garridan, owner of the White Deer inn.
Although a powerful warrior in his own right and proud of the men under his command he is no fool. Small time crooks and breaking up fights are what the city garrison is good at. Fending off a goblin incursion they are alright at but they are not suited to go into the wild hunting down goblin tribes. The sheriff employs a number of rangers to keep him informed of the goblins movements and to harass any that get to close to town.
Although not above getting his hands dirt in an investigation the latest killing in Sandpoint have unsettled him and he has sought outside help rather then allow a return of " the late unpleasantness"
