Embalsamador Pat Loboyko.jpg
"So beautiful, so exquisite… Notice the skin. It retains all the warmth, all the pliability she possessed in life. Why it’s almost as if your beloved were alive again, my lord."
Embalsamador anónimo

No todo el mundo desea ser enterrado en los Jardines de Morr. Algunos prefieren mejor conservación tras la muerte, ya sea la suya o la de sus mascotas, para lo que recurren a los embalsamadores. Estos maestros del encurtido, la preservación y la taxidermia no son sólo una moda entre los ricos: sus servicios cada vez son más requeridos en el creciente campo de la medicina, y también ganan mucho dinero vendiendo curiosidades a los clientes que tienen en mente un propósito determinado. Muchos sacerdotes de Morr (así como gran parte de la población en general) consideran que cortar trozos de personas y meterlos en tarros es una afrenta al cuerpo y el espíritu del fallecido, y los cazadores de brujas son muy conscientes de la facilidad con que estos mercaderes acaban practicando las artes oscuras. En consecuencia, muchos embalsamadores deciden ocultar sus artículos humanos tras muestras animales o servicios de cirugía hasta que se preste a los científicos de su calibre el respeto el reconocimiento que merecen.

Los embalsamadores no suelen toparse con no muertos, pero colaboran estrechamente con ladrones y saqueadores de tumbas, que sí suelen hacerlo. También es frecuente que conozcan a muchos nigromantes (aunque claro, ni se les pasa por la cabeza revelar la identidad de sus clientes).

Ruprecht KlottenEditar

This weasely little man is easy enough to ignore. Always dressed in black, pale-skinned and scowling, it is easy to mistake Ruprecht as a villain or at least someone to be avoided. This would be a mistake, for Herr Klotten is an incredibly useful man to know. Ruprecht is a barbersurgeon who turned to embalming after he discovered that he preferred his patients dead and quiet.

This does not change the fact that he is an expert healer, doctor and surgeon. His rates are reasonable and he doesn’t ask questions, making him far superior to the reputable (and often less skilled) physicians who are likely to report sword wounds and gun shot injuries to the watch.

Ruprecht Klotten has taken Skill Mastery in Heal and has the Surgery talent is very discrete. His only downsides are his unpleasant bedside manner and that he does his work right next to his corpses. His morgue is spotlessly clean but can be unnerving to the uninitiated. Stories that he sells the corpses of those he could not save to necromancers must surely be only stories.

The Resurrection MenEditar

If there are to be any advances in anatomy and modern medicine, physicians need corpses to study. But the process of acquiring cadavers is not a pleasant one for these highly educated gentlemen of science. So to whom do they turn? The Resurrection Men are one part grave robbers and one part criminal syndicate.

There is almost no way in the Empire today to legally acquire a corpse for medical study; a few condemned prisoners are turned over, but the demand for these is high and inevitably these corpses end up in the hands of only the well-connected. Anyone else must confine their researches purely to the theoretical or turn to the Resurrection Men.

Embalmers play a key role in this organisation, for it is they who know what corpses can be stolen with little fuss. They also prepare the corpses, ensuring that putrefaction does not spoil its value. Rarely are they the actual thieves – they leave that grisly task to the grave robbers. There is no doubt that there is real money to be made, as a properly prepared corpse sold to a rich physician is worth ten gold crowns at least. Of course, the Resurrection Men are despised as ghouls and vandals, but as long as there is money in dead flesh, you can be assured that this trade will continue.
