Of all of the strange things that have come crawling out of the wastes to join up with the forces of Sanctuary Usiris is perhaps the strangest. A Deva who has survived since the time of the Great War, Usiris has forgotten everything about his past. His body shows the scars of many battles, but he remembers little of his own history. He remembers a few details from the past few years but nothing before.
Two years ago Usiris was the self-appointed guardian of an Oasis several days south of Sanctuary. He spoke to “The Great Spider” who served as a kind of companion and spirit guide. He routinely defended the oasis from raiders and the foul monsters of the wastes, hiding when more honest folk came so as to not frighten them away. Usiris and the Great Spider guarded the Oasis until it was destroyed by a vast Wyrdstorm that boiled across the desert mutating everything in its path.
Usiris was spared a gruesome death by the power of the Great Spider and was found and taken in by a patrol from Sanctuary. Usiris is generally regarded as insane though harmless by the other Deva of Sanctuary who do not have a strong tradition of animism or animal worship. Others find his spider tattoos frightening and his spider spirit alarming. Only the hunters really seem to have any relationship with the strange Shaman since he has warned them several times of marauding beasts and has joined some of them on their more dangerous hunts, lending his skills to bring back food for Sanctuary.
