Gert Borel is a peasant that hauls diseased bodies, victims of plague and war. He is overly certain of his own immunity to disease. Later Gert is wandering the battlefields of southern Velen (near a burned-out settlement east of Reardon Manor), begging for death. Despite his instance of immunity, he’s come down with the black pox. You can end his suffering, slaying and burning the wretch, if you wish.
