Witch, Necromancer, Mortician, Medium and Author

The purpose of an author is to preserve knowledge... the purpose of any who work with the dead is to preserve the history of humanity in flesh and headstone. Mortellus hopes they are able to accomplish those goals in some part.

Take a look around, and enjoy everything from Mortellus' latest work to their past projects.
