He is first encountered as "Lord Berich Vlindrel" in Underpall Cave while questing for the Sword of the Crusader. In this form, he resembles a Gloom Wraith, with the Nether Lich shader effect (which gives him a distinct glowing appearance). Following his defeat at your hands, he will move to the Priory of the Nine undercroft and assume a ghostlike form - at this point no longer hostile.
Speaking to Sir Berich after you redeemed him by reconsecrating the Sword of the Crusader will have him greet you by thanking you for saving him: "You redeemed my soul from the evil that had ensnared me. For that I am forever in your debt. The old bitterness that seemed so important to me in life -- what is that now? How to weigh that against my very soul?" Asking him about the Sword of the Crusader will have him discuss how the sword shared his fate: "I took the Sword down with me into evil. You have redeemed us both. The gods smile on such deeds, noble knight." Asking him about the Knights of the Nine will have him thank you for bringing them back together at last: "The Knights of the Nine stand together once again. I would not have thought it possible. We owe you a great debt." Asking him about Sir Caius will have him tell you the tale of how he slew Sir Caius from his perspective: "The evil took hold of me the day that I slew Sir Caius on the Priory steps. I baited him, knowing his temper, and then I killed him when he drew against me. I killed him in cold blood, with the holy Sword itself! I could have disarmed him or wounded him. But a cold pride had taken hold of me, and so I slew him, and went to war, and never returned. The evil grew upon me until I became cruel, a ruler, a terror upon the land. In death, evil held me even tighter than in life. Thanks to you, that all is behind me. Sir Caius and I will go to Aetherius side by side, as of old. The gods are truly merciful."
