A rackish scholar with unparrelled access.
Little is known of where the self-proclaimed “Scholar of Belsbeth” received his accreditation. Over the last decade the major institutes of Hallowian learning left standing have all sworn, openly and enthusiastically, that Varger had not trained with them. His treatises are filled with opinion and conjecture, generally being held in low esteem amongst the Scholastica.
Yet, in their chambers, and in privacy, nary a scholar in higher learning has not admitted to trusted sources, that they have read all of his books. Varger seems to have unparalleled access to places within Hallow that no outsider could get into. His most recent work came after a four year disappearance of the normally verbose scholar, wherein many assumed he had gotten himself killed.
Instead he emerged with a haunting and informative chronicle of his time amidst the people living under the Descendants within the city if Hallow, or as it he calls it, and it looks to be sticking “Occupied Hallow”. Some have tried to discredit the work, but Slenim’s descriptions and information seem too accurate to be fabricated or so say the few people who have made it out of Hallow alive.
As an aside, it has come to my attention that areas and organizations often under the study of Varger Slenim all seemingly suddenly plagued by bandit raids and larceny. It is uncertain whether Varger is involved, but if milord will permit my own editorializing, if it is Varger that you wish to entertain your guests, I suggest we hire more guards and make sure the treasury is secure strictly out of precaution.
