Bio:

This is a priest of Erastil named Jhod Kavken (NG male human cleric
4), a traveling cleric and hunter who claims to have heard
of the exploration charter and came to Oleg’s to offer his
help. In truth, Jhod has been all but excommunicated from
the priesthood after he helped form a lynch mob against a
traveler his home village thought was a werewolf responsible
for several recent killings. Only a few hours after they lynched
the man, the true killer was caught by a hunter and revealed
to be nothing more sinister than a particularly wily worg.
An investigation by the church of Erastil followed, and they
found Jhod’s involvement in the village’s overly aggressive
pursuit of the traveler’s lynching to be actionable. Only the
fact that the traveler happened to be a bandit spy sent to town
to look the place over (a fact that Jhod discovered only after
the man was executed and his belongings were searched)
kept the church from fully excommunicating the priest—
and even then, only if he accepted exile. And so Jhod traveled
from his home in Galt up the Sellen and into Numeria. From
there, his wanderings eventually brought him east into
Brevoy, where he had a particularly vivid dream about an
overgrown temple of Erastil guarded by a huge, angry bear.
Upon waking from the dream, Jhod felt an irresistible tug to
the south, and realized that Erastil had given him a chance
to redeem himself. The tugging led Jhod to Oleg’s Trading
Post, but there it stopped—and soon after he learned about
the PCs and their charter from Svetlana. Jhod has also heard
rumors of “lost temples” to Erastil in the Stolen Lands, and
the first time the PCs return to the trading post after his
arrival, he tracks them down and asks them to keep an eye
out for anything of that nature—particularly an old temple
guarded by an angry bear.

The party liberated the temple and Jhod began work restoring it. he was also appointed to the high priest
