Raziel was a young mage, adviser to the late Lord ??? of Amarak. He turned on his lord and took control of the southern half of the Duchy of Olmar, cutting off all communication with the north for the next 30 years. It is not known exactly what Raziel accomplished over this period of time, but when the Black Wall was finally breached by the Heroes of Amarak, they found the region firmly under Raziel’s fist and policed by mercenary bands of hobgoblins and bugbears. Raziel’s reign came to an end when the Heroes of Amarak assaulted Castle Amarak and slew the mage in his tower.
