Be warned, my group really cottoned to him (much to the undead-hating ranger's disgruntlement), and ended up taking him with them to get brought back from the dead.

Also, come up with a name in advance! The encounter was supposed to be a throw-away, and of course they asked "what's your name?"

Yeah, now I'm trying to figure out how to insert this guy into my next session. Except of course he'd be chef with a big mustache complaining in my really bad french accent "You call theez brains? Pah, I spit in the general direction of theez so-called 'brains'."
