Batts Marbeq (dead)

Short-order chef turned consumption mage. A relatively slim man who appears to be in his late thirties: formerly avuncular, enthusiastic, vital and assertive. Inexplicably fond of baked goods. Sometimes prone to fantasy. Intermittently an ooze.

(After Strenuous Objections)

Batts' skin is covered in a layer of bone, calloused nodules visible where he has been flayed over the course of Dammerung's experiments. His personality has taken a turn for the silent and stoic, there is a great untapped seam of rage and sorrow running through his very marrow.

(After Anomalous Materials)

Batts wakes up.

Batts is more spacey than usual, and seems to have developed a sudden interest in local history, stalking the taverns of Acryn, where he listens intently to the stories of old heroes and local characters, lapping up their words with a fervor that is, at times, unsettling.

On the plus side, he seems a lot more cheerful lately. However, when the end of the day nears, he can be seen to glance up nervously at the sky and will often break off engagements to hurry back to the people's college.
