Marnot's skill at honeyed words are nearly that of a priest of Hiteh, but none could doubt that the lord of his soul is Zhakrin. Marnot has a monkish appearance, his hair kept short and tied back into a black knot behind his head. His skin is thinly tanned, as though a naturally dark complexion that has been paled by years of absence from daylight. He is not a tall man, standing but 5'5", but he carries his presence well.
Marnot delights in power: over the dead and over the minds of the living. Though Marnot pays lip service to the Black Order, his true reason for being among them is the gathering of intelligence for his even darker masters.
Ashes of Arend: Sent by his masters to assist Agod and discover the true nature of the portals which opened up about the mountain fortress Agod held, Marnot also acted as an advisor to the Lord Knight. When the party of adventurers arrived at the fortress, hoping to learn of the Zhakrinites reasons for being in the area, Marnot arranged for the interlopers to be confined to their chambers and thenserved as their translator and interrogator, hoping to win their trust and learn their intentions.
When Agod became possessed by the spirit of an ancient necromancer buried deep below the fortress, Marnot was ordered by the lips of Agod to travel forth with the adventurers and assist them in their quest. Once the party revealed that they were actually working on behalf of the Church of Arden, Marnot began making plans to destroy them. His assassination attempt against the priest, Kail, having failed, he soon fled from the parties grasp to work his evil against them from afar.
