Gurnie has a pretty long story, as do most of my characters, so I'll spare you the details and just give you a few facts.
She is the herald of the god Starsunder, the god of control, politics, and undeath. She helps souls find his realm and gives him advice on occasion.
She was a lich before she ascended into a herald, and her husband is also a lich.
The only organ in her body is the heart in her chest and it's not actually her heart. It's her husband's heart! The heart is her husband's phylactery and it houses his soul. She keeps it safe for him.
I love her.
