Lifetime Mending Era

Eruth of Lambholt is a young woman from Innistrad who gained notoriety for her clairvoyant dreams. She is now a gibbering lunatic living in the Natternols.[1]


Eruth grew up in Lambholt frail and restless, never comfortable, always on edge. Her nightmares began in her youth, slowly becoming more frequent until they wore away at her sanity. Every night, she dreamed that she was a different person, usually someone unknown to her. Every dream ended with that person about to die violently, but she always awoke before the moment of death. And every dream corresponded with an actual death. Some dreams took place before the death, but others were after or even at the exact moment of death.

With the arrival of Emrakul, Eruth seemed to have crossed over into utter madness. She moved out of Lambholt to the Natterknolls, and her waking hours are a constant stream of incoherent babble, fueled by the horrors of her nightmares. Once in a while, in the midst of the nonsense, she pronounces chilling words that foretell a great coming doom and then, as if unaware of the message she delivered, she continues her senseless raving.[1] Eruth claims her messages come from an entity called the "Dark Lady".[2]

After arriving in Traublassen, Eruth was imprisoned in the local keep as a human sacrifice for the entity Umbris. Umbris however refused the sacrifice, as he was unwilling to confront the "Dark Lady". Eruth was freed by the former cathar Torens. She encouraged him to break break the magical circle imprisoning Umbris with his holy mace. The entity accepted a temporary truce and freed the villagers from their evil overlord. Torens decided to return to unfinished business back in Gavony. Eruth stayed behind in Traublassen.
