The dwarven king of Sithicus who earned the nickname “The Sorrow of Sithicus” during his 30 years as the emissary of the former ruler, Lord Soth. Azrael, a despot with unholy powers, rules Sithicus through sheer fear. The dwarf recently seized control of the domain from the black-hearted knight who once ruled from Nedragaard Keep. Although the knight was undeniably harsh to the Sithican elves, he cared little for his role as their monarch. Azrael has proved a much more monstrous tyrant. The dwarf governs erratically, appearing periodically in elven settlements, demanding tribute and slaughtering any who displease him. No explanation or excuse is ever given. The Sithican elves hate Azreal passionately but fear his wrath even more. The dwarf king commands troops of undead soldiers and is widely rumored to be a supernatural creature himself. Speculation abounds regarding Azrael’s relationship with Sithicus’s Vistani, whom he seems to envy, fear, and hate.
