Claudius is a human cleric from Shallaria who appears to have put himself in long-term stasis so that he could save Shallaria from a divined undead threat in the distant future. However, upon wakening he has learned that Shallaria has already fallen. The stasis has caused substantial memory loss and most of what he knows simply comes comes from a short note he apparently wrote to himself before entering stasis. Fragments of his memory have returned, generally upon seeing or hearing things he used to be familiar with. He remembers that he was a prince to King Zsaeryus, but his relationship with his father was strained due to Zsaeryus' involvement with Necromancy.
