Custodian of the House of Knowledge
When Mount Hotenow erupted in the Year of Knowledge Unearthed (419 NR, 1451 DR), the priests of Oghma at the House of Knowledge, fearing the worst, sealed the inner sanctum. The works within could not be allowed to rot alone, of course, so one young priest — Atlavast — volunteered to be sealed in with them. For twenty-eight years, Atlavast has lived alone with the temple’s vast collection of knowledge and lore. He is an eccentric recluse now, forever cataloging and reorganizing the sacred archives. He is rarely glimpsed, but the occasional flickering light that filters up from cracks in the cobblestones in the dead of night reassure guardians on the Wall that he’s still there.
