Palento Herst was an author who wrote about many aspects of the Realm of Shyish[1]

Herst was a scholar and gentleman whose name was (he claimed) known from the salons of Glymmsforge to the academies of Hammerhal.[2a] He notably portrayed the Katophrane rulers of the city of Shadespire as merchant adventurers who were both benevolent and struck down by fate. [1d]

History

The caravan in which he was travelling was ambushed by beastmen led by Ghosteater who burst in upon him whilst he was still writing. Herst held him at bay for a few moments with his pistol until he finished and then set it down with a smile and the words Aren't you a fine beast. Ghosteater was intrigued by his lack of fear and devoured the body to claim his soul. [2b]

The old man's spirit remained silent until the Corvine Gate was opened and the forces of Azyr sought to reclaim Caddow, then he became a source of much useful advice for the albino Beastlord.[2]
