Poe

With the death of Glimmer, Alia was incensed. It was done. “Where is he?” she screamed. She was sullen and angry even as Ron opened a portal to proclaim the good news to the dwarves of the Grim Watcher. As they came through the portal, the dwarves excitedly told them of their own good news, a few minutes ago a bewildered Poe had awoken and asked his dwarven guard for a bit of whiskey as he seemed to have misplaced his flask. Alia and Poe were reunited at last.

The deal sealed with the Raven Queen, the two lost lovers delayed their happiness together for one last debt to be repaid. With a squad of dwarven bannerman behind them, they paid a visit to the fallen Dwarf friend, Jorn the Giantslayer. News of Glimmer’s fall had reached the necromancer and he had already fled into the mountains. With Krane as a guide, the two continued their search up into the wild and wintry mountains. They eventually brought Jorn to bay, cornering him in a deep and dark mountain pass. In an eerily silent battle, the husband and wife team worked seamlessly to bring him down, Jorn’s death was marked by his cowardice as he attempted to crawl away from his end while begging and offering anything to the couple if they would just spare him. In the end, Jorn lost everything, including his dignity before The Grudge struck the final blow, ending a nightmare for residents of this region of the world.

Their grim mission finished, Alia and Poe spent most of their time in the taverns of the Grim Watcher, watching others and at watch should some fool attempt to again dabble in the necromantic arts. It was said that after some years in the Grim Watcher taverns and inns, they decided to settle off alone, together and farm quietly and peacefully. A trapper once insisted on meeting the couple. He said that he had met an impossibly old couple quietly managing a small garden next to a cabin. He had been curious and asked after their secret for such a long and happy life. The man, he said, told him with a wicked grin that death itself was afraid to face again; the two of them united.
