Kalanthes

Always a powerful enemy against the worshippers of Set, Kalanthes has a long history which spans across all of Hyboria. He and Thoth-Amon also have a bitter history; indeed they may have even been once friends. Now an elderly man, he commands both a powerful will and magic, which arguably rivals any other soul on the continent.

There are many rumors and legends about the high priest, some spanning back many years, which tell of his faith's war against the dark god. The very hand of Ibis, Kalanthes has battled the darkness for untold ages.

Kalanthes had crossed paths with the adventuring Conan several times. Their lives were at stake almost every time, but fate saw fit to spare them repeatedly. Even the most horrid and powerful of Set's agents were unable to successfully remove the high priest from this world — a feat which only a few can ever boast. The command of his faith, along with the gift Ibis bestows upon him, is dazzling and mysterious when he chooses to use them. The high priest of Ibis would like to consider himself as a normal Nemedian man, but he knows the nature of destiny all too well to ignore it.

Kalanthes has made many allies, and counts a number of them as close friends. It seems that, like his old friend and comrade King Conan, he has pulled back from the front lines in the war against Set. There have been fewer stories of his miracles, and the influence of the serpent god hasn't waned. Yet, there have been sightings of a man fitting a similar description around the beaches of Tortage — an island few would call a place of peaceful retirement. It's as if he's waiting for someone.
