You don't look like a rot hide. Good. I had lost hope...
My name is Alaric, and I was once Thule's head servant and bodyguard. He used his magic to "protect" me from the Plague of Undeath, but instead his spell gave me an unlife from which I cannot escape. And after creating the cursed rot hide gnolls, Thule beheaded me... and gave my head to the gnolls as a plaything!
Please, take me to my body. I believe the gnolls buried it here in Fenris Keep, near the stable, in an unmarked grave.
Thank you, <name>. I had feared the Gnolls destroyed my body. It is good to know they did not.
