Promero was the Chief Clerk to Kallian Publico in the Nemedian city of Numalia. He was questioned by the police during the investigation of Kallian's murder at the museum known as Kallian Publico's Temple, though Conan was the main suspect. Promero was killed by a giant man-headed serpent that had been released from a sarcophagus (the same creature that killed Kallian), causing the police to flee the museum in fear.[1]

Promero was a weak and timid man. The manner of his death suggests that he died from overwhelming terror and madness after seeing the monster, rather than being physically attacked by it.[1]
