Bertrand the Beaver King, a legendary figure shrouded in both myth and majesty, holds a prominent place in the annals of the animal kingdom, his towering stature and indomitable spirit elevating him to a position of revered leadership among his kin.

"Man, I don't even know."

Bertrand, King of the Beavers

Born into the humble confines of beaverhood, Bertrand’s prodigious growth astonished all who beheld him, as he burgeoned from modest beginnings to achieve a stature unmatched by any of his brethren. His ascension to the throne of Beaver King was inevitable, his sheer size and commanding presence marking him as the undisputed ruler of his woodland domain.

Despite his imposing stature, Bertrand remained a paragon of humility and benevolence, dismissing any notions of ambition or power-mongering with characteristic nonchalance. When Emperor Fatherclaw became concerned that the huge beaver would try to usurp his authority over the animal kingdom, Bertrand assuaged these concerns with a letter.

“Don’t worry about me, man.” he wrote. “I’m just out here livin’ my life.”

However, it was during the harrowing events of the Flood of ‘53 that Bertrand’s true heroism would be revealed to all. In a display of unwavering courage and resourcefulness, he marshaled his fellow beavers to construct a makeshift dam, staunching the deluge and safeguarding the fair from imminent catastrophe. The jubilant celebrations that ensued bore testament to Bertrand’s valor and selflessness, solidifying his status as a beloved figure among fairgoers.

Bertrand’s noble intentions would be overshadowed by baseless accusations and unjust persecution. When a tree happened to topple within city limits and crush half of city hall, Bertrand was quickly blamed. He was imprisoned while local authorities conducted an investigation, much to the chagrin of his people.

Beaver protests quickly broke out across the city, demanding the release of their ruler. He was soon after released and pardoned, with a full apology from the mayor.

In response, Bertrand is quoted as saying “Nah, it’s all good.”
He eventually accumulated his own personal mustachioed human entourage, affectionately dubbed “Bert’s Boys”. These muscular, bowler-hatted defenders kept Bertrand safe from any future threats.
Bertrand continued to preside over his domain with wisdom and benevolence, his legacy enduring as a testament to the enduring spirit of camaraderie and courage.
