Doctor Erebus Kruse has been head of the Alchemy department at the University of Lepidstadt for as long as anyone can remember. As a member of the particularly long-lived Elves, he has held the post for several generations, yet still looks remarkably young and fit, resembling a tall, aristocratic-featured man in his early thirties. Kruse’s hair is straight, pure white, and long, reaching down to his shoulder blades and parted in the center. He sports a small goatee and occasionally a gold-rimmed monocle for his cloudy right eye.
Eschewing the traditional dark green short cape worn by members of the University, Kruse wears a stark white cloth in the same style over a blood red suit and black leather shoes. His hands are bare, fingernails immaculately trimmed, his whole appearance giving off a sense of decisive neatness and precision.
Doctor Kruse has taken over the running of Parva Rigeuer’s classes for the duration of his absence from Lepidstadt, and is the other Alchemist’s direct superior. In the Alchemy department of the University, his word is law, and he frequently moves from class to class, observing the students at their work.
