Alric is High Priest of the Temple of Humact. The fact that he was elected to this post one week after being spirit wracked for dishonouring his god demonstrates a sense of ironic timing which the church is really honing.
Further to this theme, he is also experiencing a crisis of faith after being instrumental in the beginnings of what looks like it could still turn into a holy war. If any greater evidence was required of his inability to get things right, this year has also included:
- Realising he was in love with Miriam, hours after helping kill her girlfriend.
- Taking the skaven out to prove themselves worthy to Humact- just as the pantheonic treaty was being changed to make this irrelevant.
- Sending a spirit speech to ask for the Maiden of Air to return and help liberate Yorvik from the lich Walach. 24-hours before finding out that she was now one of his undead minions and busy oppressing Yorvik.
- Going on a pilgrimage through Teutonia. As it exploded. See TimB/Alric Pilgrimage
Clearly he is the paladin to call if you want your cause of choice really messed up in some hilarious fashion.
