The Abbot

Mysterious head of the Abbey of Saint Markovia


A handsome young man in a white monk’s robe. A painted wooden holy symbol that depicts the sun hangs from a chain around his neck. He moves with the grace of a saint.


Over a century ago, a pilgrim from a distant land came to Krezk and insisted that he be allowed to reopen the abandoned abbey looming above Krezk. The nameless man was strikingly handsome and extremely persuasive, and the villagers couldn’t help but do as he commanded. Eternally young, he presides over the abbey to this day, and locals refer to him simply as the Abbot. He occasionally visits the Shrine of the White Sun but doesn’t talk much, and he demands tribute in the form of wine. No one knows his true name or where he came from.
