The Seeker

The Seeker (a.k.a. The Seeker, Madman of the Desert, Dark Priest)

He wanders the wall at all hours of the day. Muttering to himself, and to anyone who will listen. If he isn't on the wall, he is preaching to anyone who will listen about the coming death. It would seem he appears everywhere in the desert and the wall at random. He is there, and then he is not. The tall and lanky mad prophet known as the seeker is an enigma, the monks on the wall dislike him intensely, but he is allowed to go where he pleases, and as of the last few years, more and more are listening to his mad message, his death cultists can be heard in the desert on quiet nights.
