Ortah Gelfbeard was a scholar and an expert on old treasuries in SpellForce: The Order of Dawn.
During the War of the Six Races, Ortah Gelfbeard fought cruel battles, but he laid down his weapons ages ago. Instead he became a merchant and expert on old treasuries.
From his journeys during the old wars, he had built up quite the reputation and knowledge. When the future Phoenix Bearer brought him the ring of a ghost warrior from the old Liannon mine, he was immediately able to recognize it as a ring belonging to Udwin's group.
