In life Zhan was an unassuming man who worked as a small town holyman and undertaker. He wasn’t a true cleric (expert or adept class?), and so his main duty was caring for the dead, laying them to rest, and officiating at the funerals. Though solitary much of his life, like many in his profession, he had the good fortune to marry a beautiful younger woman who had moved to the village, without a family of her own. Unknown to him at the time, the woman was a Necromancer on the run. She married him to play the domestic and keep a low profile for a while until the hunt for her died down. Marrying the undertaker also had the advantage of giving her access to fresh corpses with which to continue her research. He was oblivious, and happy, and doted on their daughter.
Once enough time had passed, and her research was complete, she murdered her husband, and reanimated him as a protector. She may have tipped her hand too early though, as some heroes tracker her down soon after she revealed herself. They defeated her protector and the other undead that she had created, but were unable to find the woman herself. In order to gain an ally and guide, they raised the former undead guardian back to life, or a semblance of it, a used him to track her down. They defeated her and ended her plans, though whether she was truly killed remains to be proven.
Zhan feels that he has incurred a debt he can never repay; not only was he given a second chance at life, but he snatched out of the clutches of damnation itself. Traumatized beyond reckoning, but joyful at being alive again, Zhan decided to dedicate himself to irradiating Necromancers like the one who murdered him. He put aside his old life, and studied the skills he would need to track down the black practitioners, and bring them to justice or kill them. Ultimately, he what he wishes for the most is to find out what happened to the daughter that disappeared with his former wife, and reclaim her.
Zhan appears to be a human man of above average height and but a slim, even gaunt looking build. His face appears weathered; his skin is both rough and scarred, bringing to mind either some severe injury or barely survived disease in years past. His most striking feature however, is his stark white hair, which appears not quite natural to his age, and rather the result of some severe shock to his system. He is approaching middle age and appears travel hardened and worn. While is face appears harsh, and is by no means pretty, his voice is confident and assuring, and his words draw people to him in a way his apparent lack of good looks can not.

Clothing: Zhan usually wears sturdy clothing of a practical nature, and is almost perpetually garbed in his light chain shirt. Over all of this he wears a heavy, all-weather coat. On his right thigh is strapped a heavy metal tool that bears no obvious function, but bears a handle bent off its base. Around his belt are silver cylinders that seem to catch the light, placed in regularly spaced leather loops.
Habits: Zhan is not a fetching or dashing man, but he has an air about him that speaks of wisdom and demands respect.
