General Gordik was one of three generals in the military-ruled town of Redhill. When the undead forces of the dracolich Longtooth invaded and overwhelmed Redhill, Gordik was the only military leader to fight his way out.
Gordik allowed nearly half of the towns population to escape south to Drakeford, but only a few of his soldiers survived. These survivors now form the military order known as the Redhill Army.
General Gordik is highly regarded, nearly worshiped, by the surviving populace of Redhill, who regard him as their savior savior and ultimate ruler-in-exile.
