When Mornthus slew the previous god of the dead, it was the lost soul of Vlennatis that stepped in as the warden of the souls of Hades. An ancient gorgon spirit, Vlennatis is bitter with the world that gave her so many tragedies in life, but suffers from a strange ennui that keeps her from being truly wrathful. Instead, Vlennatis is a fair, unconcerned judge of the dead. The malevolent are tormented in Hades, the innocent are interred in Elysium… and those who petition for vengeance or unfulfilled wants can be granted the right to return to the mortal world as terrible ghosts and other specters. Mortal gorgons especially pledge themselves to Vlennatis; the powers of the gorgon have always been tied to death, and with Vlennatis’ blessings, necromancy is a common power among these serpentfolk.
