Thurl Merosska was a high-ranking member of the Cult of the Howling Hatred and leader of Feathergale Knights.
Thurl’s main motivation and goal was power. He thought that, thanks to the elemental power of air, he could rule Waterdeep. Thurl pledged loyalty to Aerisi Kalinoth but only reluctantly, believing that one day he would use her and her minions to conquer Waterdeep.
Thurl did not tolerate insubordination among his troops, and did not hesitate to sacrifice disloyal soldiers to his manticore that roamed the Sighing Valley.
Thurl met his demise when he was pushed from the top of the spire by Redkin.
Oreioth had always been cruel, but after his self-exile to Red Larch with only the company of his undead servitors, he became a true megalomaniac. He barely recognized his own name and dreamed of founding a kingdom of undead minions with himself on the throne. He considered himself the “Lord of Lance Rock” and hoped to protect his “kingdom” from invaders. This was due to his noble heritage.
When adventurers defeated him, he was so insane that he acted out grotesque comedies in his necromancer cave. He had animated three undead for entertainment. One was was dressed as a bear, another as a lady in a frilly dress and thick makeup, the last as a jester with jingling bells.
Zi received an invite from Oreioth to play at his “keep”, but it was a ruse by the lord in order to supply him with more bodies for his experiments. He appeared to be driven mad by “the eye”, and kept laughing manically about it.
Current status: deceased
