A tiefling warlord, Ekadamon is proud and loyal to his men, but is discompassionately practical. Sacrificing one to save the rest of the group is an easy decision.

Ekadamon rarely talks about his origins, and never in any detail. When pressed, he merely claims to have grown up “somewhere in the Nine Peaks amongst other tieflings. He is a little more talkative about his recent years, which he spent as leader of a small band of outcasts, trying to protect the scattered hamlets and settlements from the predations of bandits and wild beasts. Over the course of several years, some of their more daring exploits even became known in some of the more civilised outposts on the edge of the mountains.

Living wild in the high valleys and hidden caves of the mountains was far from easy though, and most friendly faces would hide or run at the sight of any armed band of men. It started out with just taking a little from the fields to survive while the farmers cowered in their huts, but soon most of the men felt that open banditry was the only sensible option. Opposing the only other armed groups in the region was suicide, when merely surviving was hard enough, they argued. Disappointed by his men’s betrayal of their original aim, of protecting the region from predation, Ekadamon slipped from the camp one night and headed for the more settled lands to the West. There he hoped to find better men, more committed to his ideals. There also, he could become a better leader – to learn more cunning tactics, how to rouse men to action and how, finally, to control the Nine Peaks.

In this, Ekadamon is more than a little driven by his love of tactics, the challenge of battle, the sharpness necessary to defeat a stronger foe and the calmness necessary to command in the chaos of combat. This love was kindled when, at an early age, he came into possession of a book describing the campaigns of General Daenar, one of the great military leaders of the Empire of Bael Turath. Describing many of the General’s most significant victories over the armies of Arkhosia, as well as a few of his more instructive defeats, the book filled the young tiefling’s head with the glories of the old Empire, and a longing for those days, when he could have lead an army to fight any invaders and quell any uprising. This book remains Ekadamon’s most treasured possession, and he frequently re-reads it, hoping to gain ever more insight into the tactics of his childhood hero.
