Crotinjun, the father of necromancy, he started off as a normal human who devoted to his magic studies and loving wife. His wife was a mighty knight, and unfortunately, was struck down in some great war. Crotinjun was stricken with powerful grief, and spent his studies trying to find a way to resurrect the dead, finding the origins of necromancy itself. Through further study, he found a way to make himself near immortal by becoming the very first lich. In his obsession, he raised an army of skeletons, ghouls, zombies, and other creatures to try and find his wife’s body. The other races of the world fought back, defeating Crotinjun’s armies, but before they could strike the necromancer down, he had grown too powerful, becoming a god himself and rising to divinity. In his later years, he had studied up on the shadow plane, accessing it’s powers as well, combining it with his powers over the undead. His most powerful creations are those that are combined of undeath and shadows.
