Aloth Corfiser is an elven wizard and one of the companions in Pillars of Eternity. Obsessive and dutiful, Aloth can be found in Gilded Vale near the entrance to the Black Hound Inn. If you sort out his little problem with the locals, he'll join up with you.

Background[edit | edit source]

Aloth is a 62-year-old slender elf with pale skin and straight, dark brown hair. He was born in the Cythwood, part of the mainland of the Aedyr Empire, and brought up in a servile family employed by Aedyran nobility. He received an excellent education as a result, but his childhood memories were forever stained by abuse suffered at the hands of his father. He was a strict man who expected nothing but the best from his soon and was prone to beating him particularly after a drink or two. The trauma eventually caused his soul to Awaken, resulting in a past life coming to the surface. Aloth remembers little of the episode, save for the fact that his father was more careful with him after Iselmyr manifested. However, Aloth found little to be happy about. While she was useful against his father, his mother advised him to try and learn to control her, fearing that Aloth would be rendered society's outcast should anyone beyond their family learn of his status.

He trusted his mother's advice, in no small part due to the fact that Iselmyr was an uncouth provincial from a very long time ago (at least judging by her vernacular) and tended to surface in stressful situations and take control of his body. Worse yet, she acts without thinking, escalating even the most minute of encounters. As such, Aloth developed an almost pathological need for control in every aspect of his life.

Aloth originally studied to be an arcane knight, but lost favor after trying to inform instructors about a student-run animancy experiment that would eventually kill a dozen students. His experiences drove him to join the Leaden Key under Thaos. However, his field work in the Dyrwood led to him becoming separated from the rest of the group, forced to operate on his own.

Conflict[edit | edit source]

Aloth’s conflict is about his relationship to animancy and to the Leaden Key. Aloth wants to learn the reasons behind Waidwen’s Legacy and ideally help to fix it. Aloth suspects that animancy is an affront to the gods, but he comes to learn that it is the leader of the Leaden Key who is perpetrating the crisis. On the other hand, he sees animancy as something dangerous that nevertheless might help him out with his Awakening.

His arc ends with him either choosing to take up Thaos’ mantle and run the Leaden Key or to oversee its dissolution.
