Bartholomäus Federkiel, played by Jens Grabarske, is the former director of the City Theatre of Aldradach. After a night full of drinks he took on the job of maintaining the Aldradach-Almanach from the original author, Ludovic the Player. In the beginning he just wanted to do this project on the side to be able to get to know the town of Aldradach better. But step by step Bartholomäus discovered his love for the written word. With the Scriptorium of Aldradach he not only strives to continue looking after the Aldradach Almanac, he also works on other projects and helps aspiring authors to find readers for their books.
