Rune – The Antiquarian

“These books are all that connects Tenebrae to the world beyond the night! One would do well to treat them with respect.”

Enveloped in gauze, he displayed the patience of his age through his quiet hours of reading. Rune was the eldest remaining resident of Tenebrae Manor and after several centuries of restless wandering, he had settled for a life of researching the history of the mansion and its surroundings. His jaw hung listlessly open at all times, as though it were tired of conversing with that upper row of yellowed teeth. Above his gaping maw, betwixt rows of bandages, two yellow eyes peered from a decayed blackness…


The most inclusive being of Tenebrae Manor is also one of the lesser seen. Rune appears as an archaic geriatric who spends almost all of his time alone in Tenebrae’s library. His mind is so full of knowledge that it overflows to the point where it would seem that he can’t learn anything new – becoming seemingly senile. But no, there is far more going on inside that bandaged head; Rune’s knowledge of Tenebrae Manor is without peer.
