About Brother Grergof Varsk
Brother Grergof Varsk
Blessing of the Dusk Moth After communing with Desna herself Gains a permanent +1 inherent bonus to Charisma and the irises of his eyes have become a pale silver.
More of a scholar at heart then a rough and tumble warrior, Brother Varsk stayed on after his training to mentor the younger initiates of Sarenrae as long as he could. It was in this capacity that he met Professor Petrol Lorrimor, for he visited the monsitary bearing an ancient object of unknown power. In the course of his stay, this object accidently infected one of the poor souls who came for healing, turning them into a ravenous ghoul. The creature killed two of the initiates, spreading the infection further. By the time the horror was discovered the things had cornered the good professor himself. In a fit of righteous anger, Grergof and his brothers were able to put down the beasts but not before they had taken still more innocents.
The loss of two of his students and so many innocents impacted Grergof greatly and he left his teaching position to research more about the undead. This research helped for a time, but in his heart he knew that The Dawnflower had called him to do more than just study. He had to go into the world to spread her light and ensure the dead never threated another.
Never the brightest nor the quickest, Brother Varsk was still one of the most well liked of the brothers for his compassionate nature, great strength and childlike love of games. For this reason it was with great sadness for all in the monastery when his time among them ended.
A man of calm and quiet devotion, he believes that showing others the ways of the Dawnflower though gentle guidance, a helping hand and shared toil will bring about more true conversions any iterant preacher screaming to the masses.

Skeletons Bones risen from the grave.
On an individual basis, they seek power, quite specifically lichdom. They operate mainly as lone agents or in small groups, and are prone to gathering knowledge, accounts of rare undead, or even capturing animate specimens, that sort of thing. They're secretive, obviously, and go through some effort to keep their knowledge among themselves. They share their philosophies in whispers, but whether that's because of some magical or ritualistic property of the words, or if it's just theatrics isn't clear. They're powerful.
Their symbol is a gagged skull, which ties into the practice of mutilating the faces of their victims.
They are suspected by the Professor to be looking for someone who died in the Harrowstone.
ZombiesWalking dead they rose from the Restlands and could be recognized by their loved ones if they were recently dead. (As per the Professor)
