From Dota 2 Wiki
- Rotund'jere was a pope who served in the Cathedral of Rumusque, having been promoted to Cardinal rather swiftly, much to his surprise, by the death of his superiors, caused by the spreading plague in the area. 
- Instead of going with his fellow popes and other church members, Rotund'jere schemed to acquire wealth by tricking nobles and other unknowing civilians into giving him their wealth and valuables in exchange for spiritual rewards. Even after his transformation into the Necrophos, he appears to still be spreading false promises and preaches to areas he visits, sometimes receiving valuable physical items, or sometimes the very plagued people themselves, offering their lives to him to be reaped, possibly for either ease of transition through death, or salvation.
- Given his plagued but undying state, the Necrophos may actually be on the verge of being living and dead, being able to cross to and from either state using the souls of his victims.
- Rotund'jere has had a scythe made for him by a necromantic smith, created by hammering tortured souls both into form and obedience.
- Rotund'jere may have a preference for using tools made of direstone, as they are said to be lightweight and easy to counterbalance, ideal for creating scythes.
- Despite his withered appearance and rather dark personality, Rotund'jere claims to be always rather cheerful.
- He appears to have a rather strong affection towards Pudge, always complimenting his work, even when he is an enemy, showing pleasure when the two of them are on the same team, and just being unable to hate him regardless..
- On the other hand, he appears to have a very strong disdain towards Omniknight, claiming him to be "too clean".
- He seems to call himself via multiple titles, being the "Necrophos", the "Plague Mage", the "Pope of Pestilence", and the "Dark Rot".
