FifthColumn's Curse of Strahd
Kolyan was the burgomaster of the Village of Barovia until his recent death. He is survived by his two adopted children, Ismark and Ireena. Ismark is the presumtive heir to Kolyan’s title, although he does not seem eager to take over the duties.
Kolyan died of a heart attack after a period of prolonged nightly attacks upon his home by wolves, zombies, and perhaps worse. A devout man, his children worked to have his body interred in the cemetery adjacent to the Morninglord’s church by the acolyte Donavich. The minister died before completing the rites, forcing Alistair to step in and perform the service.
