Volz was a very smart kid, got perfect grades in school, and never afraid to speak his mind. His widowed mother, Kirsi, was so proud of her child. Kirsi is wealthy, very prim and proper, very image conscious, and a devoted worshipper of Maras. Then Volz became an adolescent, learned more and more about Maras in the church’s school; and became very outspoken against the way Maras uses the undead and even the living for slavery. As time went on he became even more adamant and outspoken against Maras; Kirsi arranged to have her son “called to service” for her church. Maras was basically trying to brainwash Volz into believing. They kept him shackeled while he did his chores and locked in his dark room when not. Once the church realized that was not working, they began to torture him; cutting and burning him. To combat this, Volz ended up torturing himself to get used to it and even relished that he was able to laugh off the pain in front of priests as a result. After several years of “service” he escaped and found an underground school to combat Maras. He found he had a gift for sorcery and fiercely was learning as much on that and the undead. Maras found out about the school and, as Volz was away, raided and killed everyone who was there. Volz is now obsessive in his hatred for all Maras worshippers. He found out about the revolt in Apolista, went to offer his service to get rid of the undead and the Maras religion, and is now on his mission.
