In the Shadows of the Last War
Anderwulf has been called away to Sharn, to deal with problematic elements within the Monster Hunter’s Guild he built and established. Namely, several of its members have been implicated in the murder of a diplomat from Droam named Kalimeni. Their claim that she was “a right monstrous bitch wot tried ta turn us all inta stone” has not been seen in a positive light throughout the elite of the city, since Kalimeni was known to wear blinders in public to avoid meeting the gaze of others. The Guild left no survivors among the members of Kalimeni’s party to dispute Guild claims and there was only one witness to the event, who is being held by The Sharn Watch at an undisclosed location.

Once a handsome man, he is now scarred from head to toe, accentuated by an large X across his face..
