Father Jharod


Jharod had been all but excommunicated from the priesthood after he helped form a lynch mob against a traveler his home village thought was a werewolf responsible for several recent killings. Only a few hours after they lynched the man, the true killer was caught by a hunter and revealed to be nothing more sinister than a particularly wily worg. An investigation by the church followed, and they found Jharod’s involvement in the village’s overly aggressive pursuit of the traveler’s lynching to be actionable. Only the fact that the traveler happened to be a bandit spy sent to town to look the place over (a fact that Jharod discovered only after the man was executed and his belongings were searched) kept the church from fully excommunicating the priest—and even then, only if he accepted exile. And so Jharod traveled from his home into Ostermark, where he had a particularly vivid dream about an overgrown temple guarded by a huge, angry bear. Upon waking from the dream, Jharod felt an irresistible tug to the north, and realized that the gods had given him a chance to redeem himself. He has arrived in the Greenbelt to find this temple.
