The Avenan Empire
Grdugth is or was a Flesher Spellfreak – a hybrid human created by the lich Daern to serve him as one of his personal slave army. In the period immediately before the liberation of the ruins of Aksum, he managed to slip the mental control of Daern and hide out among the rubble with a small group of human slaves.
After Daern recovered his phylactery, Grdugth found himself once more under the control of the lich. When Daern was assassinated, he found himself free once again, and was presumably part of the general melee that followed between the Fleshers, the surviving humans from Aksum, and the soldiers aboard the Sky Treader. It is unknown whether he survived that battle, but if he did he must once more be under the thrall of the evil Daern.
