      What if neither blood rain nor flesh sacrifice are working? It seems he doesn't recognize that he's sitting in a pool of blood :/

        There was a huge amount of blood in the same room that I found him, so I teleported him into that and then blessed him.

          Douse the flames with blood and then bash his head in, you get both the portal and 425 xp. The second portal inside the room won't open unless you bless him but you can use a teleport spell to bypass the need for it.

              I used *Raining Blood (Hydro+Necro)*, but instead of blessing it, I... Used *Turn to Oil (Geo+Poly)*

              The blood-turned-oil blew up the area...

              And then the Historian proceeded to thank me for helping him... While still aflame...

              Anyways... As a side note, you can kill him for 425 Exp, but you won't get the Portal for Historian room.

                There is a puddle of blood on the ground, drop him in it with teleport and then bless him when he stops burning.

                  A way without an elf and blood rain that worked for me. Attack one of your party members until there is blood on the ground, teleport the Historian on the blood, bless it, throw a poison bomb ect. on him so he doesn't die.

                    You must extinguish his cursed flames with blood, in any way you can, rain of blood is not mandatory. After that you can definitely remove his curse with the bless spell.
