Imid had no wife, children, or friends and was a lonely man who felt he had not accomplished much in his life.
While supervising the repair of the cobblestones along the city's wall, Imid was knocked unconscious by a collapsing wagon. He awoke to find himself declared a Saint of Glorious Labour by the Lady of Beneficence's own Purest of Paladins, Invett Loath. Imid wished that the wagon had killed him instead.
Imid and fellow saint, Elas Sil, pooled the resources of the other saints to fill a chest with gold and silver coins. They offered the chest to the necromancers, Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, in return for bringing down the tyrannical health enforced regime of King Macrotus.
The necromancers soon enveloped the city in chaos. Imid rescued an infant from a human stampede and mistakenly unleashed a violent mob on the Grand Temple's Stentorian Nun. He, Elas Sill, and the now sainted baby escaped into the bowels of the temple where they were pursued by the temple's child prisoners. The trio found a dark safe space under the temple's altar where Imid and Elas fell into each others' arms. Bauchelain revealed the couple in mid-coitus to the gathered residents of Quaint and declared them the new king and queen.
