Iozef Kolnikov was born and raised in Carrion Hill. Growing up, he showed a great deal of promise with the ability to retain knowledge, which would in turn, lead him to the man he becomes. Well, that and an incident that occured when he was but a boy. His mother was bearing his sister, Iolana, and during it all, Iozef nearly lost his mother during the process. If it weren't for the midwife, she would have surely perished.
Iozef has never forgotten that day. Ever since, he knew what his calling was to be.
Being the studious fellow he was, his parents had scrimped and saved for several years so they could send him to a school of higher learning. Once accomplished, they sent him to Caliphas where he could further his education. Living his whole life in Carrion Hill, being sent off to Caliphas was quite the experience. Having always lived at home with his family, he had no idea what to expect. But it was for a greater purpose, so he was ready. He would take advantage and learn all he could on death, and how various cultures would celebrate it.
After returning home and settling back in, he made his way to the temple of Pharasma and was taken in as an acolyte. After a short time--being as well learned as Iozef is--he was given a position within the hall of records.
Iozef mostly keeps to himself, but when he manages trips into town, he makes it a point to stop and see Arlend Hyve. He always enjoys their talks. Arlend's endless knowledge on that of Ustalav has always fascinated Iozef.
Along with his trips into town from time to time, Iozef would occasionally run into Old Man Marshan. He always had a tale to offer. Iozef always found him a bit annoying, but refused to be rude and would halt whatever errand he was running and listen. He never realized one man could go on so many grand adventures. And as much of a hindrance it was to have to stop and listen, Iozef couldn't help but find such tales fascinating.
More often than not, his trips consisted of visiting Rupman Myre's and informing of what information was acquired about his ancestors. The man was determined to know if his family line could be traced back to the Ustav lineage. No matter how many times Iozef had come back with a response of: "Nothing yet.", Rupman was determined he was related somehow. Iozef didn't mind, though, he enjoyed delving into records.
Reason for investigating strange occurrences, defending the city, or finding a murder: Iozef has lived in Carrion Hill all his life. This is home. This was his ancestors home. If he was called upon in any situation to where he could be of some help, he wouldn't hesitate to respond.
Iozef is 6'5", 215lbs, and is 26 years old. Tall and lanky, he is straightfoward, brusk, yet respectful. He owns a book that consists of his family tree his parents passed down to him when he became of age. He keeps it with him at all times.
