Banak

An obsessive and evil man, Banak frightens all with whom he comes into contact. Even the Grandfather treats the High Priest with respect.

Description:

Banak’s sudden and violent outbursts of temper are legendary, and his cruelty knows no bounds. This explains the strong bonds linking the cleric to his foul demon lord, Orcus.

Banak was once the reigning evil priest in all the Bloodstone Lands. He has access to divine magic of the seventh order, but his power temporarily declined with the fall of Orcus.

Bio:

Banak was once the reigning evil priest in all the Bloodstone Lands. He has access to divine magic of the seventh order, but his power temporarily declined with the fall of Orcus.

Nevertheless, his experience and obsessively evil nature kept him in power and he remains one of the commanders of the Grandfather of Assassins’ bandit army.

Banak’s specialty and love is for the realm of undead. Every day he casts animate dead spells on whatever corpses he has managed to acquire. The Grandfather of Assassins, Timoshenko, and his chief advisor, Knellict, are worried that Banak is trying to create his own separate army.

The Grandfather and Knellict have simple plans: they pursue wealth and security working with the thieves’ guild of Heliogabalus.

Banak’s agenda would first see the bandits conquered, then he could claim Vaasa as his own. The evil priest craves another try at conquest.

PCs wandering in the Galenas east of Bloodstone should be wary of Banak. While the cleric is unlikely to risk a personal face-to-face battle, he might order his zombie and skeleton forces against an encampment. Alternatively, he might send his staff of the adder to crawl in unnoticed among a sleeping group. In his endless quest for cadavers, Banak is not averse to creating a few on his own!
