Into the Breach
Tortured Prisoner of The Three
This withered creature had been held prisoner for uncountable years in a prison built by the mysterious ancients known as The Three, inside an established prison built by the Olman people of South Merdania, but relocated by powerful magics to The Forest of Silver Leaves.
The Welp was kept alive by ancient magics and tortured with food that turned to ash in his mouth and a visage of his lost love, who turned to ash at his touch.
When the adventuring troupe brought him out of his prison he turned to ash also, leaving behind a box containing one of The Crystals and a note from The Three detailing his incarceration.
