In Glesmyr, those desperate enough to survive at all costs often loose their souls in the process. Their unspeakable acts are said to attract dark Fey of the howling winds, who possess and change them irrevocably. The Men of the Mountain will not speak of those lost to the hunger-cursed, the wind-mad, the kin-eater. However, a rare victim with an iron will can master the power of these Fey, bending them to their will.
The Sawbones learns by doing, often in the midst of combat. However, even the most experimental methods are readily accepted by those on the brink of death. Standing behind the front line, the Sawbones stays ready with a continuous supply of poultices, pills, and strange treatments for any situation. A strange sight at best, the Sawbones is typically covered in scientific tools, medical devices, vials, bottles, and anything else that could save or end a life. When forced to fight, a Sawbones' knowledge of anatomy, skill with a scalpel, and makeshift armor can surprise many opponents.
Skalds are known to be wandering performers that pride themselves in being a worthy foe in combat. Skalds are more proficient at story telling than song and dance as a traditional bard. Skalds take great pride in all they do and think of themselves as the makers of heroes, as their stories decide who history remembers, and who is forgotten by the passing of time.
Traditional monsters hunters are trained in Nectrum in Tarkalsys at the Memnlon Academy. The program is designed to teach students how to track, catch and kill monsters of all sizes.

The average student completes the whole program in four years while others take a bit longer. Only once all four tests are complete are the students classified as Monster Hunters.
