Merl the Enslaver
The self proclaimed "master of meatpuppets"
Though physically diminutive, Merl surrounds himself with a burly entourage of familiars and enslaved servants. He’s quick with the magic missiles as well.
Merl came to Overcairn seeking the Abyssal Crown, and stayed when he realised that the general lack of law and order in the city meant that his …activities… could continue while he remained mostly anonymous.
When the wall of flesh appeared outside the walls of the city, Merl advised the party to try and destroy it with barrels of raw negative energy. He has a deep dislike of the bard Eilyac, who stole his five minutes of fame after its successful destruction.
