Curse of the Crimson Throne
Dr Reiner Davaulus
Dr. Reiner Davaulus heads Korvosa‘s efforts to combat the blood veil plague preying upon the city. A Chelaxian in his mid-40s, the doctor is deliberate in his speech and conducts himself like a concerned father, seeming to take genuine interest in assuaging the concerns and maladies of those around him. He claims to have served Queen Ileosa Arabasti’s family in Egorian, the capital of Cheliax, for many years. When she contacted him several days ago, begging for his assistance on her city’s behalf, he couldn’t refuse. After accepting her gracious offer of magical transport to Korvosa, he’s spent his time assembling a group of the city’s most talented healers to help stem the tide of the spreading plague.
As was later found out, Dr. Davaulus had been actively working to spread blood veil in Korvosa under the guise of trying to help its populace. He had teamed up with a priestess of Urgathoa and her cult following and the evil necromancer Rolth and was in the process of engineering new mutations of the disease when their headquarters were stormed by Sav, Shakro, Twitch and Gazel and Davaulus was killed in the ensuing battle.
