        Derenx the Handsome is a Lunar and a teacher at the Humakt temple.
        BTW, who is Derenx? RoC doesn't give a lot of info about NPC (just names,
in fact) so In My Pavis I've made him the chief sword of the Temple.

        IMG the Humakti are quite detached from such mundane affairs as politics
(so much detached that they get the personality trait as part of their
keyword). They are honorable mercenaries who fight for anyone who can pay
them as long as they can spread the *Noble* Death. And then use the money
they make to go crusading against the Undead.

        IMO there are many Humakti in the Provincial Army.

        Cheers,
