Orlov is the last living descendant of Lochrinjeholoce the Rimehate, a fact which seems particularly important to him.
He is in the employ of Jadwiga Nazhenna. His primary task is to cast warmth spells on the Jadwiga’s troops to keep them warm on their patrols, a fact which Orlov resents.
Orlov was bested by the party, nearly killed and badly burned. His life was spared in exchange for information.
