HistoryBardon is a well traveled Dwarf who now lives in Brightport offering advice to travelers and occasionally guiding people on their trips. Show spoiler
When Group 3 found him in Brightport, he agreed to help them prepare to travel to Ki'an and eventually lead their expedition to the seal. Bardon held up his end of the deal and after the group reached the seal, Bardon took his leave. Marrek made a deal for him to wait for them to finish their business and help them get back home and it is assumed that that is just what happened.
