The Pale Balverine

Unknown[Fable]

Fable



There was an Archer who believed he was the best in the land. He was also a lord, but had fallen out of favour with his people and had been imprisoned for lying. Determined to prove himself on his release, he set off to battle fearsome Balverines. He was bitten but did not die. Instead he changed and over time became a powerful, evil Balverine. Normal weapons hardly hurt him. So thick was his skin. But he hadn't counted on a red-robed woman's solid silver arrow of truth which pierced him and killed him.
