He was once member of the Twilight's Hammer cult, but has recently deserted the sect. However, the Twilight's Hammer are not kind to those that leave their ranks, and since Ortell's retirement, they have attempted to hunt him down, but he fooled them so they believe he's in a cave system in Westfall.
