Heretic Priest - Brother Balthasar
From Burning Wiki
Concept- Priest of the Old Gods.
Character Name- Brother Balthasar
Bio- Raised as an acolyte of the Augustan order, Balthasar discovered the Old Gods and came to realize the necessity of reviving their worship. Masquerading as the faithful Augustan priest his temple masters meant him to be, he supports himself on gifts from the faithful and supplements his income with temple theft. Though equally devoted to bringing all of the gods back into prominence, he is especially devoted to restoring Ober, as he feels the poor and dispossessed need a champion. An orphan himself, raised by the temple, he is associated with the orphan gang as part of his pastoral work, and because he feels a kinship to those marginalized by the Augustan establishment.
