War of the Scales
A young wizard, has a slightly lost look in his eyes and speaks quietly
Gheras was the apprentice of Pentelex. As weeks passed he began more and more disenchanted with his new master for the tasks he was forced to do. He let one of his associates know what was going on which led to Pentelex fleeing the city. Before he did though he used Gheras in his last experiment which created an undead amalgamation of Gheras, an ogre and quite a few other dead bodies.
The party of adventurers raised Gheras from the dead and gifted him with 100 gold to see him on his way in the world.
