Vatnir is a male Endings Godlike priest, and a recruitable sidekick in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire . He is the one who invites you to Harbinger’s Watch - an iceberg in southern corner of Deadfire. He is also the leader of the Harbingers - a cult of Rymrgand.

Vatnir is the leader of the cult of Rymrgand at the Harbingers' Watch. Although ostensibly a zealot and a devotee of his god, Vatnir is actually a skeptical opportunist. He puts the blame primarily on the circumstances of his early life. Being a godlike is hard enough, but being a godlike of the god of decay and entropy in the brutal, unforgiving expanse of the White that Wends made it even harder. To make things worse, Vatnir was considered a messenger from the gods, due to his appearance, and many looked to him for guidance and wisdom.

For better or worse, Vatnir decided to take up the mantle and do the best he can to make life bearable for others, even if it means heading a cult of death-obsessed fanatics.
