Brother Vartan was the second highest-ranking Oghmite priest at the House of Knowledge under Brother Anthus. When he died, Vartan and Rohini took over the temple and shortly thereafter moved it and its hospital for victims of the Spellplague to Helm’s Hold. Brother Vartan ‘s life’s work has been research into resurrecting dead gods, with a particular interest in ending the Spellplague by resurrecting Mystra. This research led him into contact with the Abolethic Sovereignty. Through his influence, most of Oghma’s church in Neverwinter became thralls of the aboleths. Vartan is now a patient at Helm’s Hold.
