The Scourge of Kanethar
Undead sentient afflicted
6’0", average build – Wide-brimmed hat. Black hair hangs loosely over Rando’s right eye, which glows with a weak red light. Heavily bandaged in the style of an “Afflicted,” but with accessories (tooled black leather belt and pouch, high quality boots) that were most likely stolen from Eirik Breno’s corpse.
Rando was once one of the “afflicted,” a mindless undead laborer in thrall to the Minders of Necropolis. When his owner, Eirik Breno, was wounded in an ambush by Siena Mott, he took the opportunity to finish off his master and take his damaged Minder’s Amulet. Smearing the glowing red “essence” from the amulet across his eyes, Rando regained a sliver of his humanity, but the memories that returned to him were jumbled with those of others. He also found that his fellow undead servant obeyed his commands as if he were a Minder. Siena, seeing that Rando was not like the other undead she had encountered, offered to help Rando recover his identity. Rando, however, had other things in mind.
His undead instincts drove him to a nearby farm, hungering for the flesh of the living. He and his afflicted compatriot attacked and killed the farmer and his wife. To Rando’s surprise, when life left the bodies of the couple, they rose as afflicted and followed him. Other victims followed, and his army increased until they were destroyed and he was driven off by the PCs.
His motivations are still unknown.
