Corean's City of the Mithril Golem
Derigesh strikes a slight but imposing figure among Corean’s priesthood. He’s still vigorous at age 65, and many younger clerics believe Corean preserves him, keeping him from suffering the unkindness of age. Derigesh has been the high priest for over 20 years; during that time, he has both guided the clerics and ruled Mithril with a kind, just hand. Though under pressure from the Shining Council, he has not yet chosen a successor. Derigesh tries to balance his duty to the temple and Corean with his own sense of compassion.
He hates to see suffering and wants to find a way to improve conditions in Harbor City, but he understands there are limits to the temple’s (and his own) reach.
