Use this as a starting point. Always ask questions: Who, what, when, where, why. Extrapolate on and embellish your answers, and draw inspiration from your existing fiction. As always, if a roll doesn't fit well, then change it!

So this is a Good Cleric who doesn't especially like you, but will give you what you need if you will help him hide from the Shadow that is searching for him. It followed him from, well, the shadows, and it turns out it's his own Shadow. The Cleric's magic caused an auto-ressurection upon his death, pulling him from the shadows. Unknowingly, his Shadow came along for the ride!
