A flimsy sprout like you will never defeat me. Even so, I'll teach you one final lesson—in pain.

— Bercilak

Bercilak the Green is a sylvari of the Nightmare Court that challenges newborn sylvari to duels to the death. Through use of his magical armor crafted by Occam, which renders him immortal, he has slain many innocents to help spread Nightmare. Bercilak is eventually killed, however, by exploiting the armor's two weaknesses: that it doesn't work unless the whole set is worn, and is vulnerable to the tool which made it, Occam's hammer.

Trivia[edit]

  • Bercilak is a reference to a character from the Middle English romance, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
    • The Green Knight in said story is garbed in green armor, seemingly immortal, and has the same name (though the name has varying spellings and pronunciations).
  • The player character's line from the intro cinematic "Somewhat. In my dream, a champion in brilliant green armor defeated all challengers. He seemed invincible, yet a small mouse nipped at his heel." most likely is a reference another near immortal warrior Achilles. In Greek mythology, Achilles's only vulnerable spot is his heel.
  • Bercilak wears full heavy Nightmare Court armor, wields a Nightmare Sword and Warden Shield.
