Curse of the Crimson Throne
Reiner Davaulus - DEAD (NPC)
Doctor, Head of the city's plague doctors & chief architect of said plague
Dr. Reiner Davaulus was appointed to head Korvosa’s efforts to combat the Blood Veil plague that preyed upon the city.
The Doctor is a Chelaxian gentleman in his mid-40s, usually wearing a simple black overcoat and clasping his doctor’s case. He had short dark hair, with streaks of white gracing the sides. He is calm, polite and deliberate in his speech and conducted himself like a concerned father, seemed to take genuine interest in assuaging the concerns and maladies of those around him.
This proved false however as he was at the heart of the cause of the plague. Fittingly, he drowned in a vat of his own virulent concoction when he was pushed in by Adian and could not climb back out.
The story he told about himself was that he was in Korvosa to visit Queen Ileosa. The Queen contacted him after the plague hit, begging for his assistance on her city’s behalf, he couldn’t refuse. He has spent his time assembling a group of the city’s most talented healers to help stem the tide of the spreading plague. In all cases, he spoke highly of the queen and her attentiveness to her city’s needs.
