Lanterns in the Mist
Father Charlatan (deceased/ghost)
One of the five most notorious prisoners of Harrowstone.
Sefick Corvin, Father Charlatan – Of the five notorious prisoners, only Father Charlatan was not technically a murderer, yet his crimes were so blasphemous that several churches demanded he be punished to the full extent of Ustalavic law. Although he claimed to be an ordained priest of any number of faiths, Father Corvin was in fact a traveling con artist who used faith as a mask and a means to bilk the faithful out of money in payment for false miracles or cures. He became known as Father Charlatan after his scheme was exposed and his Vistani accomplices murdered a half-dozen city guards in an attempt to make good the group’s escape.
Father Charlatan’s crimes were the least heinous, and thus he was imprisoned not in the dungeons below but in a relatively normal cell. Yet the power of the churches he blasphemed against was strong, and as a concession toward that power, Father Charlatan was bound in heavy chains decorated with the symbols of the faiths he sinned against.
Father Charlatan’s bones were located in his cell on the second level of Harrowstone but no haunts manifested themselves. In true Charlatan style the father hid himself and tried to possess Dragos’ body. Dragos fought a battle of wills but came out on top and defeated Father Charlatan.
