The Haarlock Legacy Campaign
Cisten is a minor scion of one of Solomon’s guilder families who has devoted himself to a life of academia and lore. Ancient history is one of his passions, and tales of Rogue Traders and their voyages have always held a fascination for him.
Independently wealthy and getting on in years, Cisten saw the auction on the Hause of Dust and Ash as a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a piece of the things he has dreamed of and studied for years – purely for research, of course. Though he hates to admit it, Cisten grew ever more frightened as matters progressed on the Burning Isle and he is grateful he befriended someone who not only flattered his expertise, but saved his life as well.
Since his escape from the Burning Isle, Cisten has returned to his home and duties as an academic. As he recovers from the ordeal, he is proudly coming to realize that for a brief, terrifying period of his life; he actually got to live such as the objects of his fascination. Quite content never to experience such terror again, Cisten nevertheless holds Atellus in high regard, as well as the rest of the team who helped get him out of the House of Dust and Ash.
