Berkthgar was a Reghedman barbarian from the Tribe of the Elk who served as the chieftain of Settlestone for a time,[3] before returning to become king of his tribe.[citation needed]


The barbarian chieftain had wild brown hair, which fell across his strong shoulders. Berkthgar had muscles the size of dwarf thighs and stood 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m).[4] To add to his imposing presence, the huge human had strikingly blue eyes.[1]


As leader of Settlestone, Berkthgar lived in the shadow of Wulfgar and wanted Aegis-fang to demonstrate to his people he was the rightful chieftain of the Elk Tribe.[4] He was set in his ways and viewed the dwarves and the residents of the Ten Towns as enemies. He was also "stymied by strong women," namely Catti-brie [6]


When in battle, Berkthgar used a great flamberge called Bankenfuere the Northern Fury and wore a fur covered jerkin. The huge 4 ft (1.2 m) bladed sword rested in a leather sheath over his right shoulder.[7]


Berkthgar was the son of Beothgin.[6]

In 1357 DR[8], Berkthgar was an emissary between Settlestone and Mithral Hall who interacted with King Bruenor.[3] Around 1358 DR, Drizzt Do'Urden and Catti-brie traveled to Settlestone to resolve a disagreement Berkthgar had with Bruenor Battlehammer over Wulfgar's warhammer, Aegis-fang.[4]
