Biography Edit

Background Edit

"In Love and War" (2x57) Edit

Essek was in attendance when The Mighty Nein received an audience with the Bright Queen, and returned the Beacon to Xhorhas. When Nott inquired about her husband Yeza's whereabouts, it was Essek as Shadowhand who confirmed that Yeza was in fact in their custody. Before the Bright Queen dismissed the Mighty Nein, Essek was assigned to be their steward while they were potential allies to the Dynasty. Afterwards, Essek took the Nein through the Shadowshire to the Dungeon of Penance where Nott and Yeza reunited. Though coy at first, he did agree to release Yeza after a small interrogation and then continued to show the group around Rosohna, to the Dim's Inn and their new lodgings.

"Agreements" (2x61) Edit

Essek returned to the Nein to show them to their new home, courtesy of the Bright Queen.

"Domestic Respite" (2x62) Edit

Essek dropped by the Xhorhaus, and after Caleb displayed his magical prowess he decided to begin teaching him the basics of Dunamancy.
