Beadula, Guardian of the High-Pass

Beadula was a toll-collector of the Beornings and Guardian of the High Pass. Rumor however had it that he was secretly a minion of the Shadow.

Notes

Original form in MECCG: Baduila

Baduila is the latinized form of an ostrogothic male name, attributed to the historical King Baduila as his birthname. The etymology is most likely *badwō, "Battle", and -ila, a common gothic ending indicating an affectionate form. So Baduila would be "the little Battler" or "Little Fighter". The corresponding Anglo-Saxon form would be "Beadula".
