Hierophant Ignacius III
Hierophant of the Alassen faith
Hierophant Ignacius III is the supreme arbiter of Alasse’s will in the mortal realm. His palace is in Monte Sereni, capital of Ambracia. Though Ambracia has a monarch, the Hierophant is just as powerful in determining the political fate of the country.
When the Avettine Plague ravaged Ambracia, Ignacius retreated to the mountains beyond Monte Sereni, in the hopes that isolation (and devoutness) would spare him. When Empress Rihan invaded, Ignacius fled north with the Ambracian royal family to the Dwarven Kingdoms in search of allies.
