A flying helmet that sometimes masquerades as a 2' tall cherubic angel
A servant of Desna, Helgarval was originally summoned to the Material Plane to serve as a familiar but was stranded when its master died. Since that time, the angel has tried to do good deeds in order to gain the notice of its betters and return to its home plane of Elysium.
Most recently, Helgarval stumbled upon the doings of the oni of the Five Storms in the Kalsgard area and has spent years quietly observing the oni and their agents and gathering as much information as it could.
Learning of Snorri Stone-Eye’s connections with the Rimerunners Guild (and thus with the Frozen Shadows), Helgarval secretly stowed away on the funeral ship, only to find itself trapped belowdecks.
Once convinced that the PCs who found him were opposed to the Oni of the Five Storms, Helgarval revealed himself. After returning with the PCs and traveling with their caravan for some time, Helgarval is convinced that finding the caravan was his destiny. More importantly, he is convinced that Koya Mvashti is the key to returning him to Elysium and angelic glory.
When not spending his time talking to Durok Redshield, Helgarval follows Koya Mvashti‘s every move, even her darker ravings of late. Helgarval has taken a bit of an unexpected interest in necromancy because of Koya’s focus there. While he finds it distasteful, Koya is so obviously imbued with the righteousness of Desna, that Helgarval overlooks his distaste.
