Verian was forced into the service of the Iron Lord by his abbot. The priest for a western messenger god, his abbey is allowed to operate in the peninsula by order of a long dead emperor. Terumoto saved his abbey from a pirate raid, and Verian was sworn to his service in payment.
Verian secured his freedom by directing the party to retrieve a holy relic of his church, which he used to increase his standing within his church.
