Taubert is the current Duke of L'Anguille, Bretonnia. He was a sailor in his youth, but has neither set foot on a ship nor lived within sight of the sea for over fifteen years, ever since returning from his last voyage. He has not spoken of his reasons to anyone.
Since his return, Duke Taubert based himself at Grasgar Castle on the edge of the Forest of Arden. The Dukes have used this castle as a hunting lodge for generations, but Duke Taubert has been expanding it and using it as a base for expeditions, deep into the forest. He says his aim is to defeat the Beastmen, but many think he just wants to be as far from the sea as possible.
