Been reading over The Hollows to prepare for my first adventure into the FL, particularly the NPC backgrounds. I'm a bit puzzled about why the "Rust Brother" Sturkas is loitering in this town of cowards and milksops, and why he's appointed himself a kind of sheriff or deputy. His backstory of regret suggests he's had a kind of parting with the Brotherhood, yet he clings to the ways and will take out a Raven Sister on sight.
I'm thinking of changing things up a little in the plot to throw the players right into the middle of an escalated conflict between Mrs. Pollmor and Yawim where Sturkas looks to become the benefactor of playing both parties off against each other, with possibly Yawim being framed for the murder of Pollmor, possibly by the players. But I don't know if that fits what a Rust Brother would do. Still learning the lore.
