Bardolan is a high ranking member of the Amnish Guard at Nashkel. When you first visit the town, he will approach you as you cross the bridge and question your identity.
No matter how you answer, he will accept that you mean no harm and leave you alone. If you choose to answer response 2 both times, however, you can learn something rather more substantive than previous rumors about the iron shortage. He will leave afterwards

Apparently the iron coming out of the Nashkel mines is "rotten" and there are "demons" in the lower levels. Furthermore, a member of the guard named Brage went on a murderous rampage and is still loose. Nashkel is a troubled city indeed.
