TACTICS

Mogral is rarely without a couple of commanded undead guardians by his side. He prefers to use his spells at a range to weaken his foes before he enters melee. If capable he casts false life, enlarge person, shield and spectral hand before entering into battle. If weakened he will try to use his spell-storing hammer to deliver a vampiric touch spell, or just cast vampiric touch against heavily armored foes.

DESCRIPTION
Mogral has ashen skin and milky, obscured eyes. His dark beard and hair is almost always disheveled and covered in sooth and ash. He has yellowed rotted teeth and bad breath. His warhammer is covered in dark glowing glyphs of death and necromancy. When a spell is activated from it, it emits a low eerie howl and oozes with blood. In combat Mogral wears a darkened breastplate covered in jagged, serrated spikes and carved with skulls and images of death. If caught unaware he will usually wear simple, bloodied, grey robes.

PERSONALITY

Mogral has become blinded with revenge and power. His studies into the dark arts have corrupted his mind and he is now more comfortable in the company of the dead than the living.

BACKGROUND

Mogral is the third son of a minor noble clan, his family mostly consisted of priests and tomb guards, an honorable position Mogral was raised for. On Mograls first tour as a tomb guard he stumbled upon the tomb of an ancient necromancer. He started to study the ancient texts in secret. One day he was caught by his fellow tomb guardians. They were appalled by the necromantic experiments Mogral had conducted on the bodies of dead dwarves in one of the tombs. As punishment Mogral was exiled from his clan and his city, to wander the underdark for eternity. Only a plea from his mother saved him from death. Since then Mogral has planned his revenge against his people and has started to slowly gather an army of undead. He still lacks the power to control such an army, but he hopes to find an ancient artifact to aid him in his endeavor.
