GURPS: Casus Belli
Former Bishop and secret Herald of the Faceless King
Born to a wealthy Romano-Breton family, Paulus Merdinus entered the Church at an early age and rose to the rank of bishop (thanks to the wealth he and his family had at their disposal.) Unfortunately, raiders overwhelmed his bishopric, leaving him without official authority. He is still addressed by his previous rank but this is a polite fiction and, in truth, he has no more authority than a regular lay priest.
