Jeth’Ramar is a very powerful wizard who was fascinated with the dark arts of necromancy. He was once a man, long ago during the first age of Ilkarsa. He was obsessed with the magnitude of power that Nerull had and eventually sacrificed his humanity in order to learn not only immortality, but also to mold Ilkarsa into a place of undead servitude. With the willing sacrifice of his soul to the God of the Underworld, Jeth’Ramar achieved Archlichdom and started creating hordes of undead to destroy everything in the area. Jeth’Ramar’s stronghold was located in what would be called the Stonefang Mountains, but this was unknown to anyone at the time due to the abrupt appearance of his army. Nerull planned to use him as a tool to gain possession of more of the free races’ souls.
