Belak the Outcast

Keeper of the Gulthias Tree

Description:
Bio:

Belak was an evil Human Druid who took a delight in the darker side of nature and showed a love for poisonous plants and fungi. Later in life, he took up residence in the Sunless Citadel, and ancient sunken temple of Ashardalon. The Outcast was drawn to the location because of the existance of the Gulthias Tree, a malevolent plant that grew from a stake used by Ashardalon’s cultists to slay a vampire in one of their rights. The tree’s magic fruit has the power to heal the sick or kill its eater, depending on the time of year. For thirteen years in his Twilight Grove, Belak tended to the Gulthias Tree and put his Bugbear gardeners to work while he sent his Twig Blight minions to torment the surrounding countryside, until a party of adventures came to the locale in search of fame and treasure. Belak made two of these folk his automaton Gulthius supplicants – the human Paladin and Wizard Shawryn and Bradford Hucrele. When The Companions came in search of him, he engaged them in combat, bolstered by numerous Twig Blights, his two supplicants, and his Giant Tree Frog companion Kulket. The party nearly died, in fact, Praxis was sliced in twine by the Belak’s sickle. But in the end, Viceak Loyalar defeated him in hand to hand combat, leaving the druid pinned to the gulthias tree with his old sword.
