This withered gray elf seems to exude a smell of old paper.

In his eyes you can see the tell-tale quiver of one who worships the Prince of Lies.

Bio:

Androsel Remmith was born a cheerful and precocious elf to a village in the forests of Aglarond. As a child, his unnaturally gifted mind was found to be both agitating and admirable to the folk of his village, who, despite being gray elves, had long ago surrendered their intellectual heritage to lives of simplicity. As decades past, a longing to explore and gain insight took hold over Androsel, until finally, on his seventieth year, he decided to leave the village to find his fortune, both material and intellectual.

Both fortunes came to him when he became an apprentice archivist at a temple of Oghma in Veltalar. Surrounded by knowledge in the form of tomes and texts, and with centuries to peruse it all, Androsel continued to grow more knowledgeable- at long last, when he outlived the humans who had initiated him to the temple, he was made the High Keeper.

And yet, as years passed, Keeper Remmith grew bored. He began to experiment in dark and eldritch arts, raising the dead in the forms of zombies and skeletons, practiced magic to give life as well as take it. Soon, even this he found tiresome. He sought reading material that would truly expand his mind- he yearned for a text that would expand the horizons of mortal knowledge. He remained restless until one autumn day when a madman collapsed dead at the foot of the temple, clad only in rags but clutching tightly a gold-lettered tome of great and obvious value. This book was labeled “The Cyrinishad”.

Remmith was unable to resist his temptation. His greed for knowledge overtaking him, he sat for three full days reading the Cyrinishad. Its magical compulsions overtook evil his wizened, elven mind. When he next emerged from his study, Remmith was a devout worshipper of Cyric.

His first act was to order the burning of his temple. After centuries, the deed had fallen into his hands; the other Oghmanites, once his friends, could only watch and cry in protest as the precious tomes and scrolls were burned away, their contents only now known to the one mad being who had read each and every one.

Remmith traveled west, to Amn, and then to Calimshan, where he began to spread the word of Cyric. Convinced that he was a divine herald, he grew increasingly confused as those around him began to regard him as mad. Each place he traveled, a few open souls did indeed confess themselves to Cyric. Remmith still travels to this day, occasionally returning to Calimport to delegate mad tasks to the Lantern of Twilight, the cult of his own founding. The Lantern seeks to spread the worship of Cyric through demonstrations of his might, and Remmith often performs acts of heroism, not to help others or do good by Faerun, but rather to spread the glory of his god. Just the same, Remmith is out of his mind and unable to see the moral difference between solving a problem by mediating a solution, and just killing everyone.
