Cudberct (died 870s), also known as Eel of Earth, was a Zealot of the Order of the Ancients who operated in England during the 9th century.


Nothing is known about Cudberct's childhood. Grown to be a deeply emotional man, Cudberct saw the impact and consequences of his part on certain people's demises. With the silver he received from every job he did, Cudberct paid for services of each victim and mourned their losses as well. Within the Order, Cola built a loyal and professional relationship with the Order member, The Anvil.[1]

In his rounds, Cudberct patrolled the area along the roads of the eastern and southern parts of Oxenefordscire. It was during one such patrol that he came across and then killed by the Viking Eivor, who was allied with the Hidden Ones. Afterwards, Eivor received a clue among Cudberct's personal effects. The clue, showing the title, The Anvil, stated that Eivor needed to investigate the smithy next to ruins on St. Albanes Abbey, in Oxenefordscire, just north of Lunden.[1]


  • Like other Zealots, Cudberct had unique fighting tactics and gadgets in his weaponry. Upon Eivor's instigation, Cudberct wielded with a poison-implemented spear, attacked with throwing spears and poisonous grenades, and packed rations to heal himself within battle.
  • For The Anvil, Cudberct has the same clue as The Scabbard, whom Eivor assassinated along her journey.
  • Ironically, Cudberct may be found in vicinity of the same abbey, where Eivor has to investigate for The Anvil.
