Lord Meru has always searched for the elusive meaning of life, for that special purpose, revealed to a few, that would make his life worth living. As they say, he who searches will find, and as the Lord of House Crassus, Meru didn't have to look far. The stories he grew up with led him into the depths of Castle Ganezzar, to the sealed chambers he swore not to enter. There, in the undisturbed darkness he found what he was looking for and emerged a changed man. Calling himself the First Acolyte, he renounced his lordship and started preaching, spreading his message and preparing his fast-growing flock for the Gods' return.
