Bestel

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Bestel is an NPC that can be found in Lioneye's Watch in Act 1.

Lore

Bestel claims to be the captain of a wrecked ship known as the Merry Gull.

He has a penchant for bad poetry and bad humour.

Dialog

Bestel is voiced by accomplished New Zealand actor, Ross Girven.

Introduction (Duelist)

A dashing Duelist, drenched and deserted on the dreary strand. That's the first line of the poem I'm writing about you, exile.

Easy lad. You could lacerate a bloke with a look like that.

The name's Bestel, captain of the good ship 'Merry Gull'. Alas, my Merry Gull is gone. My crew is gone. But my wits remain... after a fashion.

Introduction (Templar)

A tyrannical Templar, to be tested and tempered in the straits of Wraeclast. That's the first line of the poem I'm writing about you, exile.

Easy mate. You could damn a bloke with a look like that.

The name's Bestel, captain of the good ship 'Merry Gull'. Alas, my Merry Gull is gone. My crew is gone. But my wits remain... after a fashion.

Introduction (Shadow)

A sodden Shadow staggered from the surf and surveyed the somber strand. That's the first line of poem I'm writing about you, exile.

Easy, lad. You could poison a bloke with a look like that.

The name's Bestel, captain of the good ship 'Merry Gull'. Alas, my Merry Gull is gone. My crew is gone. But my wits remain... after a fashion.

Nessa

Poor Nessa. Not even a mother herself and yet she cares for us all. And what a sickly, pathetic brood we are. May she live to have her own family, a real family. If anyone deserves that, Nessa does.

Tarkleigh

Tarkleigh rescued from the waves
A stricken Bestel, fate's slave.
From fallen crew and broken bark,
Bestel lives, thanks to Tark... leigh.

Drowned Dead

Arrol, the Merry Gull's cook, washed up on the rocks over yonder. Dead as a doornail he was. Buried him myself.

Then a few days later I see him on the beach... a little worse for wear, but upright, shuffling about. A land full of disturbing surprises, this Wraeclast.

The Medicine Chest

There's an island, a hop, skip and a wade offshore of the Terraces. That's where my Merry Gull ran aground.

Watched the locals spit-roast the ships doctor, but his medicine chest might stil be there, amongst the splinters and bones. It'd have everything Nessa might need.

Doctor 'Shaky Hands' Opden was lousy with a scalpel, and even worse with a saw... but he knew his apothecary. Explains the shaky hands, if you ask me.

Inspirational Poem

A stranger like no other,
Faces the wall of the Umbra,
Opened a pass in a sorry land,
Gave some hope to a sorry band
Of exiles and death-soaked castaways.
A chance at life on a brand new day.

Surviving Wraeclast

One day we'll be strong enough to make our way inland, build new lives on the carcass of a dead empire.

It's why God sent us maggots here, isn't it?
