Avery sitting in the Cat's Lair Inn

Avery is an official of the Royal Guard, he has appeared several times in the Warriors of Destiny and In the Shadow of Virtue event cycles.

He was present in Moonglow for the Mad Mage event (also see Blackrock Detector. He was assigned to track down the remaining members of the Followers of Armageddon. Finally, he was fingered as a traitor by Casca, and as of January 2009 was imprisoned with Ricardo. He has been absolved of the crime and released on the beginning of the In the Shadow of Virtue event cycle with an apology from Queen Dawn, yet decided not to continue the service.

From what we can tell of his character, he is a competent officer who follows orders well. He seems to have had the unenviable task of denying the involvement of the Shadowlords in the Blackrock Detector matter, despite clear evidence of their involvement. This, combined with the strangely dark-colored armor he wore, made some players' characters suspicious of him. A good friend of Sherry the Mouse, it should also be noted that he spent too much time together with Ricardo while imprisoned.
