Sir Hugo is a paladin who is loyal to King Lathas. He is fiercely loyal to the idea of the divine right of kings to rule, in contrast to Sir Edmond, who believes the king rules by consent of the people.
During Plague's End, he accompanies Sir Edmond to West Ardougne to see the citizenry and an adventurer have ousted the mourners and seized their headquarters. He rejects the proclamation and declares it is King Lathas' right to do as he wish, having the divine right to rule. He leaves to go guard the king, but is killed when the adventurer attacks the castle alongside the Ardougne knights and heroes.
