Confounders are the Holy Warriors of Forian, empowered to propagate unpredictability throughout Avlis.

It is not known for certain where or when Confounders came about. It has even been suggested that they may have arisen independently in several different places at the same time, which is entirely possible. What is known, however, is that all Confounders follow Forian and live their lives in accordance to his philosophy of self-gratification. Warriors who take it upon themself to worship Forian for his ability to grant them their own selfish desires will often wind up as a Confounder. Most confounders have no rhyme or reason in what they do in the long term, they simply exist from day to day. Many hold that they are extremely holy people who know how to live in the moment, others contest that they are simply too lazy to think about anything other than what is happening right now. World domination... too much work. Riches... sure, as long as it's enough to buy the next meal, though being able to buy meals indefinitely is a plus. Fighting the good fight... eh... maybe... if it can benefit them somehow. Commonly Confounders will not do anything unless a reward is given, which leads to their being found on all sides of conflicts, performing all kinds of actions.

Confounders are typically - in so far as any Confounder may be considered typical - fond of flexible weapons, i.e. flails, morning stars, etc, reflective of their own chaotic nature. Armor choices tend to vary according to their purpose at the time. There is no official Confounder organization or hierarchy: Confounders are united only in their devotion to Forian. However, if offered the proper compensation, a Confounder is reasonably likely to accept an apprentice and teach them their ways.
