Equipment: Holom’s equipment changes every day.
Like every high cleric of Chaos that comes to light, Holom’s name is
spread far and wide by the religious. Every attempt is made to prevent
the cult of Chaos from gaining power. One weapon the clerics of the
religions have is knowledge. They describe and explain to the faithful
the dangers of Chaos and of his ministers. For that reason, Holom is one
of the best known of men on Habololy.
What is told of Holom,
strangely enough, is the truth. He sees no reason to subvert the story
that is told of him. Born somewhere on the islands south of Ekarude,
Holom is the son of an islander Shaman. He focused much of his early
life on looking for the same site and inner power that his father
possessed. He thought he had found it. His father soon uncovered the
truth; Holom was not a Shaman, but a sorcerer. When Holom was told, he
was distraught. He left his home island in search of another way to
live. It was not long before Chaos arranged to take the desperate Holom
and mold him to his liking.
Holom was ‘luckily’
discovered by a cleric of Chaos somewhere in the ocean. The cleric
revived him and quickly played on Holom’s desire to find a new purpose.
He focused Holom on the Counsil, deities for whom he had little respect,
and whom could have easily given Holom the power he so desperately
desired instead of the sorcerer’s curse. His training led him to the
divine realm, where he began to master the ways in which the divine and
the arcane could be made to work together.
One day Holom awoke, and
his teacher was gone. Not knowing what happened, and not particularly
caring, Holom began to do the things that he and his teacher had talked
about. Most important among them, bringing about the fall of the
Counsil, and the destruction of Habololy.
For the last decade,
Holom has raided, looted, plundered, and caused havoc and chaos whenever
and wherever he could. He teleports around randomly, and finds the best
way to cause mayhem in his current location. Many nations have a hefty
bounty on his head.
