Nothing is known about Beorhtsige's early life. A strong and hefty man, Beorhtsige was very prideful of his career and especially his "red" beard. Beorhtsige then stated outright most of the times, "It's dyed with the blood of my kills." Filled with such happiness in his line of work, Beorhtsige was noticed by the Order and thus he was inducted into the Zealots. Within the Order, Beorhtsige became a loyal and strong friend to the Order member, The Vellum.
In his rounds, Beorhtsige patrolled the area along the roads throughout Glowecestrescire. It was during one such patrol that he was located and then fatally beaten by the Viking shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir, who was allied with the Hidden Ones. After Beorhtsige's death, Eivor found a clue, which gave the title, The Vellum. This clue led Eivor to investigate the fort in Thieves' Warren, in Glowecestrescire.
- Like other Zealots, Beorhtsige had unique fighting strategies and items in his weaponry. Upon Eivor's instigation, Beorhtsige wielded a long spear, utilized flash grenades, and defended himself with proximity incendiary devices.
- Ironically, his build up close is of a general build and not of a build like fellow Zealots Horsa or Hrothgar.
- For The Vellum, Beorhtsige's clue is the same one Eivor received if she assassinated The Baldric.
