Lord Monduiz Dephaar, the "Terror of the Fruztii," was in life a Torquann nobleman and the chief lieutenant of Kargoth. In undeath, he is a fearsome death knight.

Appearance

Lord Dephaar resembles a burnt skeleton with a shock of brittle, scorched hair bound in the style of the Frost Barbarians. He wields Lyrnegode, a great axe that he won from a champion of Djekul hundreds of years past.

Relationships

Lord Dephaar retains close ties with the cult of Demogorgon.

Realm

Lord Dephaar has carved out a realm in the Bone March, ruling over undead, humanoids, and bandits who call him the Dreadlord of the Hills.

History

Lord Dephaar was born in North Province in the city of Bellport in 167 CY. His family was slaughtered by Frost Barbarians, but Dephaar survived to become one of the Knight Protectors of the Great Kingdom. As part of Aerdy's vanguard against the barbarians, Dephaar fought alongside Forren Vir and Lord Kargoth himself. Dephaar's repeated atrocities against his barbarian foes eventually required censure, and he went into self-exile in the far north. Dephaar only returned from his exile when he heard that Lord Kargoth was challenging the knighthood's Castle Gallant; Dephaar joined with Kargoth at Castle Fharlanst, when he unwillingly was transformed into a death knight along with Kargoth's other followers.

From his stronghold, Dephaar now kills all Knight Protectors he can find, as well as Frost Barbarians.
