A World in the Balance
The last survivor of the events that created the Mage Scar
Archmage Aramath was one of the main participants in the magic ritual that caused the devastation in the Mage Scar. When he realized that the ritual was going to have effects beyond his original estimation, he cast powerful protective spells on the mage compound in an attempt to save himself. Although he was not killed by the ritual, he suffered from the unexpected side effect of being split into three separate entities. The passing millenia in addition to his unsuccessful attempts at reuniting his divided parts eventually drove him to madness. The Raven Queen sealed him inside the broken tower at the Sagewar Ruins so she could have a powerful undead at her disposal to test her prospective champions against.
