Evil cleric of the Deamon God Apep.
Two years ago he was a cook for a mining outfit that was clearing out Dwarf ruins near the town of Focasia. Kessen was the cause of trouble between the Dwarf and Human miners and having betrayed both to a clan of Kobolds. A group of self proclaimed Heroes defeated the Kobolds, settled the miners and unmasked the cook as the source of it all. Fleeing to the coast he disappeared from the mine camp.
Some weeks later while using an ancient Diorgie Shrine to channel his Gods power the Heroes again ruin his plans. A Cleric among the interlopers doused the unholy flames in the sacrificial brazier with holy water disrupting the ritual and leaving Kessen in a half formed state. Scarred and deformed his control over minions and other members of the Cult of Apep is stronger though he has come to almost fear the interruptions of the Heroes.
