Aldric was the spiritual leader of the Barony.
Some time after the adventurers defeated the bandit army minions of Orcus infected Aldric with vampirism, driving him mad. He so said to all that he was sick and never exit more in daytime. At same time he summoned rats and worgs that spread chaos near the abbey. At last he tried to escape from the village in gaseous form.
Aldric was very fatalistic, disapproving of going against destiny. He was a powerful opponent.
