Ernesto, from Ultima VII Part Two
The Rangers of Moonshade were tasked with the dual functions of keeping the peace amongst the feuding denizens of the city and producing famous artisan wines. Ernesto served as an officer for Julia, commander of the Rangers.
Ernesto survived the destruction of the city brought when the Anarchy Bane, possessing the body of Shamino, overtook Moonshade and killed much of the populace. Whether he was under the sway of the bane or was simply overlooked during the slaughter is unknown.
- His dialogue actually is one of the still existing hints of the Cut Material in Serpent Isle which isn't hidden only in the usecode.
- According to the original design documents, Ernesto was intended to have begun making bizarre magical wines after Shamino the Anarch overtook the city, which would have produced effects ranging from passing out, to going into rages, to stumbling along in drunken fits after imbibing a single sip of the brew.
