Dogs Like Socks



Appearance- Wears a ratty brown monks robe. It is patched, torn and rotting. 6 Feet Tall. Incredibly skinny with long black claw like hands. A dagger and a few small jars are attached to his rope belt. His eyes glow green. A glowing green smile can be seen from under his cowl but his entire face is shaded in black. A sickly yellow green mist escapes his lips occasionally, this mist swirls and tends to form skulls.

[Lore] Arles Rotbone was never his true name. It was simply what he was called. Little is known of where he once came from. What we do know is that he had entered a monastery in a time of plague, his body was consumed with rot, skin gray and hard, the cracks red and filled with a black ooze that could only be described as death. He faded in and out of consciousness as the disease took him to his very bone. He muttered terrible things about the death, of the power of this plague... He sounded almost reverent despite the fact that he was dying. One day he awakened with a hacking cough, his eyes opening, a sickly green glow filling them. He sat up very slowly, his body having been leeched of most of its fat and muscle, looking more like a twig than a man. He climbed from his cot and walked into the middle of the room where the plague victims were being housed. He began muttering something quietly before exhaling and taking a deep breath. As he took in a breath a sickly greenish yellow mist filled the air, the disease began escaping the lips of the dying moving towards him. It entered his lips and his body shuttered. After about a minute the mist was gone and the people began waking up appearing curiously well. The monks looked on in awe, they had never seen such magic at work. It was as if the man had a blessing that allowed him to cure others. Needless to say he was requested to join the order of monks, his magic having been of great service to the monastery. He had no memory of the life before him but the monk Lee Sin had an idea of what to name him. Lee Sin gave him the name Arles Rotbone, he would become a local legend, The Plague Monk. Sometime after Lee Sin left to join the League Arles Rotbone began to feel bored. He had heard stories of the league, of creatures made of death and rot. Of a murderous scarecrow and of a zombie gravedigger. Arles decided to take a chance with the League, after all... It might serve to a more personal and more sinister purpose of nurturing a more deadly plague within his blood.
