Ulysses Northcrest was Northcrest The First, the first of the ten Northcrest Barons following the Bresling dynasty. Under his reign, he outlawed worship of the Old Gods revered by the Hammerites and Pagans, but did not destroy the chapels and churches outright. He was the first of three Northcrest Barons to do so.
It was under his reign that the Moira Asylum was turned into a prison. Around this time, his men captured the legendary Sneak Thief, who was also the last of the Keepers (the original Garrett), who was believed to have initiated the Dark Age.
