Anthony William Percival Arkwright III, Esquire

Absalom Scholar


Few clerics have the academic reputation worn by Anthony William Percival Arkwright III. Yet Anthony attends no church, and even the scholars of the Arcanamirium have cast him out.​


Events of Dragon Watch

Season Three: The Other Gods

The Initiative met Anthony in Illmarsh, a fellow traveler and customer at the Hoary Fish Inn. Anthony saw through their disguises and was immediately intrigued by their true purpose in Illmarsh, but he swore to keep their secret. When investigating his quarters, Orin discovered Anthony’s alignment to be chaotic good.

Anthony eventually revealed himself to be on poor terms with the Arcanamirium, where he had tenure, after his pursuit of the cults of the Dominion of the Black and their Black Truth.​ This gave him the opportunity to aid our heroes in Illmarsh, however, and he was with them during their confrontation with the gillman, Hagen, Apostate Gharol, and eventually Chevaghol herself.

After the confrontation with Chevaghol, Anthony found himself aboard the Titanis with our heroes as they pondered their next moves. He offered Orin a sponsorship at the Arcanamirium, and he was invited to stay with the group for the time being afterwards. He eventually returned to Absalom and the Arcanamirium with Orin and Astrid and spent his time with Astrid researching.​

When Astrid and Orin left Absalom to search for the Technic League, Anthony stayed behind to continue his research.

Season Four: The Dream-Quest of Unknown Brevoy

After the destruction of Kraggodan, Anthony found Thorgur on the road to Skywatch. He took Thorgur to Highhelm, in the Five Kings Mountains, to investigate the apocalyptic event that had torn the world asunder. There, Anthony discovered that Torag had once fought – and prevailed against – the terrible creatures that now stalked Golarion. Anthony despaired, however, when he also learned that Torag’s weapon had been locked away beneath Highhelm behind a seal that only royal blood could open. And with the sundering of the world, all of the dwarven kings and queens were now dead. The weapon was forever lost.

Anthony escaped Highhelm’s destruction with Thorgur’s help, but he was separated from Thorgur in the jungles of Razmiran.
