Abanazar [Jorgan Arcarnate] (deceased)
Head of necromancer cult-murdered by party for his treachery
A tall, brown-haired fair-faced kind High Lord, but in reality a undead ice blue hideous undead monster.

Eventually, in the final piece of the Assault on Courtbridge he revealed himself and was slain by Farfal’s blade.
