The Reaver, one of the most feared mass murderers of ages past
The Demon is supposedly the progeny of Iblis, granting him sorcerous power and a connection to certain metaphysical concepts related thereto. 167 years ago, the Demon, apparently under the belief that he would rise to a position of generalship and power under the right circumstances, attempted to upset the Balance and wrest control of the laws of magic by stealing the Magister’s Book. He was betrayed by his brother, the mysterious entity known as the Beguiler, stripped of much of his power, and sealed away in the heart of the ruined mountain where he and the Magister did battle. When the Seal was damaged 167 years later, following the death of the most recent Magister, and stolen by shipwrecked pirates from the Scarlet Witch, he was encountered by the Party and revealed that he was content to remain sealed as his time would come eventually, and in the meantime he was safe from the coming influence or predations from the mysterious forces from beyond the edge of Creation that have existed since the beginning of Time. Upon realizing that the monk Ishmael was in fact in possession of the Magister’s Book, retrieved from the rogue wizard Ibn Ubay, he attacked them and was defeated, left bound and humiliated in his tomb, continuing to await his release.
