Below and Beyond Kyvid
Phillipe, Neil’s cousin, has never been particularly friendly with Neil, but in the past few years, he’s been downright hostile. Neil thinks most of this has to do with his aunt’s fears and Phillipe’s ambition, but one of the main driving forces is Vortaan, the demon responsible for Neil’s tiefling nature. Geoffrey’s, Neil’s father, contract allowed the demon subtle ties throughout the family tree, and Vortaan has sown seeds of discord throughout. Phillipe’s dreams, much like Neil’s, have been plagued with visions of demonic destruction. In Phillipe’s case, though, it’s Neil who destroys the family when he inherits the estate, bringing not only ruin to the Emmenthal family name, but fiery destruction to Jarlsburg.
