Vash the Death Cleric
Vash the Death Cleric

When I was 18, I watched my village get slaughtered by a monster known as a weeping wolf. Paralyzed in fear, I watched this monster grow bigger and stronger as it destroyed everyone.

When I was the last one left, I could do nothing but watch as it advanced towards me – now much larger than when the attack started. As it stood over me, a chill shot through my body. In a flash, the creature transformed into an amulet of Shar, goddess of darkness and loss. I do not know why I was spared, but I collapsed after the fear left my body. That was the last time I experienced blissful darkness when I slept.

When I woke up, I was surrounded by the soulless bodies of my village. Pale faces with empty eyes. Sadly, their bodies were not dead. No, it took several days for each one of them to stop breathing.  All I could do was watch in despair as everyone slowly perished.  

I began wondering after I watched everyone in my village die slowly. That event left a darkness in me, a darkness that haunts my dreams every night. As if the goddess’ sense of humor was not enough, I now see the weeping wolf any time I tap into the divine energy I have come to recognize as Shar. I am convinced Shar wants this darkness to take over, but I fight it. I try to remember life before the attack by focusing on the lives of those I now have around me.
