Favod the Younger

A lifelong native of Imphomonee, Favod the Younger was the most sought
after artist of the previous century. His father, Favod the Elder,
was a sculptor of middling talent who kept the family well off with
statuary for the Eskla nobles of the city. In an attempt to woo the
heart of a crushed dame, Favod the Younger first attempted the arts by
creating a deathmask of the girl's fallen brother. The magnificent
construction won him the favour of the girl and her whole family, and
soon Favod the Younger was the famous artist of the city. Due to the
nature of his work, wealthy families would transport him in advance of
the demise of fading relatives and keep him in Opulent surroundings.
Pieces of his work exists in mansions and museums all along the
Minkush River Valley, and his success enable Favod to purchase an
immense structure overlooking the falls in Imphomonee. For a few
years, it became fashionable to hold masked balls where the courtiers
would were faux-deathmasks of themselves.

It is said that in his later days, Favod took on an apprentice, who
created a deathmask of Favod himself. The mask has never been seen
outside Favod's family, and no other works of the unnamed apprentice
have come to light.
