Being the unfortunate result of a death ritual gone horribly wrong, Ilhenir --- once a handsome and strong young knight who's parents mourned so grieviously that they went to great lengths to have him returned to them --- is bitter. Surrounded by other undead and swamp creatures, he has been condemned to a life of foul stench and wretch existence. His former glorious life now a distant memory, family long gone... stained by the despair of his own loneliness. Bedlam now his only home. Infused with the power of man, beast, and monster he is quite unstoppable, but no challenge really quenches his anger. That is until a strange lady, clad in black and red, appeared before him. In complete shock that she would be able to pass through his numerous minions unscathed, he took notice and listened. "How is it that you stand before me without harm?" He asked the lady. "My powers are beyond this world. None in this wretch of a land can challenge it." She answered. "Is that so? Well, where I dwell isn't of "this land"... what you see here are centuries of forgotten souls who have felt my revenge." Ilhenir boasted. "Revenge for what, if ye cares to say?" Ix Tab pressed. "For this." Ilhenir stood up and outstretched his arms. "What you see before you is the remains of those whose loved ones felt a need to hold on to and failed. The result being unholy evil; pieces of living creatures stitched together, not whole beings." Ilhenir's voice raised. "And thus they discarded thee when they saw what ye hath become... I see." Ix Tab trailed her voice. Ilhenir raged. "YESSSSS, do you think this is what I wanted? To live in enternity as pieces of myself. I had died the death every knight deserved, in battle and on that field I should have stayed!!" "And are ye seeking to continue thy wrath on all those that have shunned thee?" Ix Tab asked. Ilhenir sat back in his chair, "Is that what you are offering?" Ix Tab smiled. She knew that he could be easily persuaded against Sosaria to do her bidding.
