Bookston Herod was a level 35 human found at Kurzen's Compound in Stranglethorn Vale. Herod was Kurzen's logistics officer and knew everything about the running of Kurzen's Compound and the expedition. Herod was Private Thorsen's contact within the compound when he infiltrated the camp to spy on the members and bring intelligence to his supervisors at the Rebel Camp. Lieutenant Doren believed that Herod might have discovered Thorsen's true allegiances and had a hand in the subsequent assault on him.
Shortly after the Cataclysm, when a mysterious substance began driving Kurzen and those close to him mad, Herod was hanged for the crime of consorting with rebels.
