Curse of the Crimson Throne
An enormous, bat-like creature shaped from utter darkness, its eyes tiny red stars in the blackest night
A servant of the Midnight Lord Zon-Kuthon, Ildervok watched over the Star Tower at Scarwall for eight centuries, waiting for a new Curate to present themselves. When the Crimson Blades encountered Ildervok, he insisted that one of their number volunteer to take the thankless, mindless position for the rest of eternity.
After Shadowcount Sial “volunteered,” Ildervok also offered Laori Vaus a rare chance to visit ZK’s dark realm of Xovaikain and testify against the Count, but the elf cleric demurred. With that, Ildervok vanished along with Sial and his gleeful chain devil companion Asyra.
