Chronicles of Istera
High Priest Oswald Viscari
*DEAD AS SHIT*
Oswald was once the resident High Priest of the Holy Trinity of Innsmarch. He has held that office for the past 64 years up. No one knows much about him aside from that. On the eve of the sacking of Innsmarch, Oswald is rumored to have summoned a legion of demons to invade the city, revealing himself to be a powerful demon lord.
When Innsmarch was sacked, he and his clergy ‘fled’ to Lundus. While there, he stayed inside their small chapel reading from his holy tome, which was revealed to be a demonic bible.
His life took a turn for the worse when the cleric known as Leeroy attacked Captain Jeremiah Revel. Oswald telekinetically threw Leeroy across the town for attacking Revel, though Revel did not approve of this action, so he tackled Oswald to the ground. Seeing their master under attack, his clergy, now shown to be demons, began attacking the townsfolk. Oswald fled to his mansion but was pursued by a force consisting of the Imperial Army, the Empress’ Canaries, the Ritteri Trinitarus, and the Eternal Sentinels. This force, led by Captain Jeremiah Revel and assisted by the PCs, managed to kill Oswald once and for all.
