Status: Missing and unknown
Description: This person is at the very top of the Arachian Ranks. Long hidden in the shadows, the Arachian Lord finally made an appearance in May 2020. However, all the time from the start of the Nid Arach fortress, he had been around, scheming and plotting in the darkness. Many a book in Nid Arach refers in some way to this master of darkness, yet there are a very bare minimum few who have ever truly seen him. Where he comes from is unknown. What race he is of, is unknown. Yet, this person is powerful enough to have caused a mark of Jishrim's presence on the very air and soil around his fortress. He is knowledgeable enough to learn of the location of many artifacts and gather them within this mighty fortress of Nid Arach. He is fierce enough to command the respect of the forces of darkness. His current whereabouts are unknown.
