This article is about the vampyre. For the book, see the butcher
The Butcher is an erratic vampyre, who created the Pestilent Bloat, an undead monstrosity made from dead body parts of various creatures, as a commission from Verzik Vitur. He supposedly made the Bloat to make Vitur happy and expecting a reward, although being fearful of her.
Apparently when he wanted to report the finishing of his creation, he found Lady Vitur missing from her chamber and only her Nylocas, after which he had "seen too much".
Despite supposedly being crazy, the Butcher hid secret messages in a book, where he describes the parts his creation is made from. These messages warns the reader not to trust "her". A few anagrams tells that Serafina was betrayed, Verzik Vitur is dead and that the Nylocas will rule.
