Said to be cold, insidious & conniving, the Cracked Lord made his fortunes backstabbing every ally he ever made. At a certain point, he raised the ire of the Dread Lord, not imagining the warlord would travel so far for a single insult.
Unfortunately, this was a gross miscalculation, the Dread Lord's forces arrived early. In the early portion of the defensive, Lennistrad was killed in the confusion. History of the Cracked Lord is lost beyond this point & will require extensive archeological research.
A class absolutist, the Cracked Lord judged your worth first by your status and second by your competency. If neither met his standards, you may as well have been invisible.
