Breton vampire necromancer, his Greyhost husk and a reliquary were taken away by graverobbers.
Tired of their journey the group of three Nords set up camp oblivious to the ritual markings of a Harrowstorm surrounding them. The storm caught them, consumed their souls which filled the reliquary and freed the vampire from his husk.
The vampire, lost out on the promised salvation by the Ashen Lord, struck a deal with Lamae. Though he would rather feed whole Tamriel to her, he now pulls in every willing soul for the Blood-Matron and counters the plans of the God of Schemes where he can.

He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.
