Varl Wex is an unhinged serial killer who haunts the Chelish city of Kintargo and has left a trail of bodies in his bloody wake.

Appearance

An artisan by trade, Varl wears a suit of leather armor that incorporates a thick leather apron lined with pockets for his tools. Varl wields his signature magical kukri, Balgorrah, which bathes him in a bloody crimson light. Varl also has a distinct smell of slurk grease, as it is used heavily in his work with clockwork devices.[1]

History

Varl Wex works as an artisan at Vespam Artisans under the illustrious tinkerer Vespasio Vespam[2] whilst living in the Iudeimus Tenement in Old Kintargo. Varl was compelled into his role as a serial killer when he came into possession of Balgorrah,[3] an intelligent magical kukri created in devotion to the deity Norgorber in his aspect as the Skinsaw Man. Balgorrah compels it wielder to kill and was owned by the notorious Temple Hill Slasher when he haunted the city.[4] As well as the Temple Hill Slasher, Varl also appears to be obsessed with the progression of the soul through life, death, and along the River of Souls.[3] One of Varl's early victims was a cleric of Milani named Myrletta, a member of the Rose of Kintargo, and associate of Hetamon Haace.[5]
