Bertrand is a major character featured in Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight.

Prior to the game's story, Bertrand was selected by Lady Violetta to be the generation's Fafnir Knight. However, circumstances appeared that rendered Bertrand unable to finish the ritual and the need to return to his homeland. When he returned, however, the ritual was over, and Violetta had become the next Black Guardian herself. This would trigger a chain reaction causing Ginnungagap to fall into ruin.

Still possessing the power of Fafnir, which gave him unimaginably long life, Bertrand waited an entire century for when the next ritual would happen, thinking that he could put an end to this mess. It was at this point that he met the Fafnir Knight of that generation. Joining the Fafnir Knight on his journey, they venture deep into Ginnungagap.

However, when the Ritual is almost complete, and the Fafnir Knight is about to become the next Black Guardian, Bertrand tries to interfere, believing that what is happening is his responsibility. As Bertrand still possessed the power of Fafnir, the system believed him to be the one to pass the power onto. However, this was a mistake, and instead of Bertrand becoming the next Black Guardian, he was transformed into a monster known as the Demi-Fafnir, with no mind of its own, and faces the Fafnir Knight in combat.
