Sins of the Fathers
Dr Balthazar Skell, Artist of the Dead
Born Balthazar Fleischmann. Highly intelligent and powerful Necromancer. Formerly a fellow apprentice with Rutger, studying under the Amethyst Magister Lord Haxtes. Creator of the bizarrely crafted plague zombies that terrorised Talabheim, with known links to the skaven sorceror Asorak Steeleye, the dread sorceror Gille, and even the Great Deceiver himself. The initials of his current alias show that he is likely to be the ‘B.S.’ who supplied the Magister of Schwarzwald with heretical tomes of Deamonology. He had recently purchased a number of surgical grimoires from Bela Dustermann in the village of Sumpfrand in the Talabheim crater. It is also possible that he had involvement in the slaughter at the Dragon’s Maw and thus is linked to the Animus. Wears expensive, if dated, clothing and a plain white carnival mask. Was hideously wounded when shot in the face by Mordin.
