"Faithful Servants", a short story written by James L. Sutter, was serialized as Pathfinder Tales web fiction in November and December 2011 and released as a compiled eBook in July 2012. The 4-part story is a prequel to Sutter's novel Death's Heretic, which follows the story's protagonist, Salim Ghadafar, on another adventure doing the bidding of the goddess of death.

A reluctant servant of Pharasma, Salim is no missionary. Yet when a desperate eidolon seeks his help in saving his master's soul, Salim has little choice in the matter. Saddled with a strange curse, this mysterious snake-man's creator is no longer in control of his actions—yet they may still weigh on his soul when it comes time for Pharasma's judgment. Only Salim can put a stop to events before they go too far. But are some souls really worth saving?
