He is a worshiper of Kord.
He has has a keen interest in meeting the other survivors of undeath, especially the lost Valdai.
He may have died and been zombified by a green dragon, although this is unlikely.
Despite his tale telling, at least some of his exploits may be true, particularly an incident during the bullette invasions of Domil.
He is possibly insane.
