Royal Apothecary Jentulf was a prodigious, eccentric potion maker in service of an unnamed king.


Jentulf was a leading apothecary at the royal court, crafting potions to enhance the king's army, as a member of His Majesty's war council.[1] He did so in a very controversial manner, however[2]. Apparently, he himself did not fully realize exactly how his potions worked, yet was sure of being the greatest apothecary of his time.[3] He was known to draw ideas from others sometimes, putting them to effective use.[4]

After making a potion that allowed the taking life of the slain for oneself, he promptly tested it by committing murder. Jentulf was put to trial afterwards and sentenced to imprisonment. The apothecary genuinely did not understand what did he do wrong, accusing the judges of being simply jealous.[5] In prison, stripped of his title, he pleaded the king for early release, promising to create more invigorating potions.[6] Later, Jentulf was granted freedom and reinstated. However, he became more sinister afterwards, believing that fear is the greatest motivation, which reflected on his new creations.[7] His contempt towards the other apothecaries grew greatly, as Jentulf believed they all expected him to lose his talent during imprisonment.[8] In the end, Jentulf disappeared without a trace, stating in his final letter that his genius transcended benevolence and embraced chaos.[9]
