Bysted Timperton is the current vice-chairman of the Council for Quezlarian Research. Because he holds such a high rank in the Council, almost all biographical information about him has been struck out of the public record. As you may suppose, this makes my job quite difficult, but I was able to piece together enough information to write this biography.
He is thought to have been born in -70 EC, in a spot somewhere on the Ghyllian Map. Next to nothing is known about his childhood, but we can easily infer that he was an exceptional student. He graduated at the top of the class body at Bute University, further cementing his status at the top of the scholarly world. As an early adult, he married Menia Pyre. They quickly had a son, the brilliant but rebellious Tim Timperton. Close to the date of Tim's birth, the Council for Quezlarian Research offered Bysted a job. He quickly moved up the ranks to his current position, which he has held for a considerable time.
Bute University offered Bysted the role of Chancellor, which he gladly accepted. It not only gave Bysted a place to put the rambunctious college-aged Tim, but is rumored to have solved Bysted's task of finding the Council's new home. During the second of his five years as Chancellor, the Timperton Clocktower was constructed. It is said that the clocktower is either the meeting place of Council members, or a testing facility for forbidden and forgotten lore. Around this time, Bysted also talked the Council into letting Tim have a major role there. He didn't last very long, however, and was spotted one night to have flown out of the Timperton Clocktower via a window, and gone straight to the local pub.
These days, he does unclear work on an unclear project in an unclear organization.
