Restoring a Head

The Lady Lesyeux acts independently and imperiously. Her noble ancestry is clearly apparent.
Turning to Eolar, she speaks with a a voice that's, despite her lack of lips, clear and pure.
“A kind but lowly priest of Pelor travelled with us for a while and I studied under him in an attempt to gain the power needed to heal my friends. I’ve learned a lot since our last meeting, but I am still years away from being granted the powers I need.”
She stops for a moment. Her thoughts impenetrable behind her featureless mask.
“Now that Gelless and Selmars are whole again… more AND less, I have only to find a way to restore Lefty and Righty’s arms. Could your superiors do this as well?”
The Lady Lesyeux unclips her mask and reveals the ruins of her once breathtaking looks. Her still beautiful eyes are set within a grotesque death mask.
“Could your superiors return my face to me?”
Then she pauses again.
“Could they restore Ortos to human form?”

Eolar ponders only for a short while before answering
"Restoring limbs and giving your face its former beauty can be done and I can ask my church to send a cleric with the required abilities."
He pauses for a while
"But Ortos shares the same fate as Thesis now. Only the mightiest wizards and clerics can perform this miracle and although there are clerics within my order with such wisdom, I can't promise that the consistory grants such a wish to be fulfilled."

Surely there's an easy solution to this...

Kill>resurrect>kill>resurrect...

Until he comes back as he should!

Well, but he loses a level each time he's brought back :)

Yeah, but eventually he dies....

Hmm... Must admit I hadn't thought of that. But he's go what? A 1 in 10 chance?!

Not bad odds unless you're rolling to stay alive :-p
