The Flesh Sculptor Elijah Ryker

The Flesh Sculptor Elijah Ryker

An infamous Necroficer who seemed to pop onto the social map without any explanation, Doctor Elijah Ryker has managed to inadvertently make a name for himself within many communities. While rarely seen by the public eye, the rumors of his grotesque creations and the nature of his craft have become widespread throughout multiple social circles.
