"This is killing business."— Bron, after watching the Nephalem kill Risen(src)
Bron lived in New Tristram long enough to see the town's share of misfortune. He got on well with Deckard Cain, and used to talk with the scholar for hours.
With the coming of the Fallen Star, New Tristram came under attack by the undead, and Bron's inn became a shelter for the wounded. With the aid of the Nephalem, the town was saved, though Cain was among the casualties. Although he tried to hide it, Bron was deeply affected by his death.
