What an asshole
Clyde Mannering is an arrogant, posturing, and unintelligent criminal, and partners in crime with Judd.
Clyde met Judd early in his criminal career. The two of them worked as a team, where Clyde did the punching and Judd did the talking… and the punching. Clyde and Judd roamed the roads of Miklagard as highwaymen, until they came to the city of Sigurdsholm. Steel-Eyed Susan forcibly recruited them into her gang, where they followed her orders and shared in the loot.
Eventually, Susan was caught and hanged, but mysteriously returned from the dead. Clyde believed Edwin when he said this was an omen of Arawn‘s favor, and joined the fledgling Black Masks. At Edwin’s urging, Clyde and Judd killed several members of the City Guard. Clyde traveled to the graveyard to boast about the killings to other Black Masks, but was attacked and taken hostage by the party. Immeral kept Clyde imprisoned for approximately 24 hours in his box while the party negotiated a “hostage exchange” in the Woods. The Black Masks attempted to ambush the party, but were routed by the party, who tied Judd and Clyde to a tree and left them for the foresters. They were picked up by the foresters in the morning.
After a few weeks, Clyde and Judd weaseled their way out of custody and returned to Sigurdsholm. They found that Edwin and Susan had been killed, and the Black Masks dissolved. When two of the ex-Black Masks turned up dead by The Kobold, Clyde blamed the party for their murders, and Judd rounded up some ex-Black Masks to ambush the party in an alleyway. Clyde dueled Immeral on a rooftop, but Immeral threw him from the roof, and a host of fairies disemboweled him.
Clyde was eventually resurrected in the Iron Trinity Church. Disoriented, he learned that Judd had struck a deal with a professor to have him revived. Before they could skip town, the professor arrived and magically compelled Clyde and Judd to fulfill their end of the bargain.
