About Güldenstern

Originally guard to a temple of Irori in Tianjing, this Aasimar looked for another task, because Iroris monks could easily take care of themselves. When he heard of the Pathfinder Society's discovery of an ancient temple in the Hao Jin Tapestry which originated from Tianjing, he translated his name into the Skal version "Güldenstern" and volunteered for a mission along the Pathfinders to do research on the temple and its inhabitants.

During that mission, he fell victim to a haunted kitchen, where a ghost possessed him and made him attempt suicide b slitting his own throat with a kitchen knife. His companions could save his life just barely by magical healing. However, scars would stay with him not only in visible form. The ghost fled the destruction of the haunt by entering Güldenstern's body through his slit throat. Güldenstern fell into a coma while a fight over the control of his body ensued inside of his head.

At this time, deities decided to act: The Empyreal Lord Korada persuaded Irori to cooperation to deny the Demon Lord Sifkesh, who had corrupted the soul of the haunt's ghost before, both of the souls at stake. If Güldensterns mind was strong enough to hold the ghost at bay, he would be able to use it's power for good, therefore producing lots of good karma for himself as well as the ghost's. This good karma would enable Korada to adopt the redeemed ghost's soul after it would enter the afterlife, denying Sifkesh her prey.

Irori agreed and appeared in Güldenstern's mind to guide him to find the strength to take control of the ghost inside of him. When he woke up from his coma, years had already went by and most of the Pathfinder Society's Aasimars and Tieflings fell in or retired after the fightings in the World Wound. Güldenstern could harness the ghost's powers to gain strange knowledge or forcefully influence other's minds. Using this power for good, the good karma earned by him and his second soul strengthened Güldenstern's angelic heritage, giving him powers over light and changing even his body.

Still, whenever he is about to sleep, Güldenstern is asking someone to bind his hands, because the ghost might fall back into a state of remembering Sifkesh's teachings and tried to cause suicides or murder again, while Güldenstern's mind is in a state of absence. Also, occasssionally the ghost's words slip from Güldenstern's mouth, promoting suicide or insulting religions.
