Ravenloft II: The House on Gryphon Hill
The Alchemist is a recent arrival to the region of Mordentshire, having only been in the village a little more than a year. As his title suggests, he is both a talented alchemist and wizard, engrossed in both science and magic. He is currently engaged to marry Lady Virginia Weathermay, and is a frequent presence at Heather House.
Of his past very little is known, and the Alchemist offers little insight into this. Common knowledge of the Alchemist’s doings is that he settled into the old Gryphon Hill Mansion when he first came to Mordentshire, and remained reclusive there until a short time ago. Most recently, the Alchemist fled his home and has been staying in Heather House, suffering from amnesia and fever. Though he now seems healthy, he cannot remember why he abandoned the house on Gryphon Hill, save that he is filled with a deep and repulsing fear of the place and will not return.
