After being abandoned by their gods or goddesses, most heroes go mad and are left to wander the wilderness. They start to eat filth as they become wild, losing most of their mentality and humanity. They seek shiny things and hunt down those heroes who are following a greater being, jealous of their guiding force and hating the cleanliness of these upstanding heroes. They generally have a yellow pallor and seek tasty things to eat, like human flesh. Their madness takes many forms, and you may notice that they occasionally carry many heavy, unwieldy, and exotic weapons that, while effective, are generally worthless to the sane hero. They may occasionally give some gold coins and treasure in the folds of their filthy rags, but they just as often have no possessions and will attack with live poultry and snake whips.
