ABOUT

Once a powerful warlord, the cursed entity known as Scorzak brought fear and ruin to his enemies during his mortal life. Seeking immortality, Scorzak marched his armies into the underworld itself. Just as Achilles before him, Scorzak immersed himself in the river Styx, becoming invulnerable to the blows of all mortal weapons. Pluto and his host of the dead were no mere mortals, however, and as Scorzak challenged the god of death for dominion over Tartarus, he finally met his match. As the dead lay waste to his armies and Pluto himself humbled the nigh-invincible warrior, Scorzak finally understood the nature of hubris.

Dragged through Phlegethon, the River of Fire, Scorzak’s body was filled with an inferno that set his very soul alight. Despite his torment, death would not come for Scorzak. Immortality he had sought, and so immortality he was granted: for the Olympians decreed that as punishment for his pride, Scorzak would not die until he had repaid his crimes in service to the gods. Now he travels the world carrying out their will. He is messenger, herald, hand, and justice, ever-burning and never tiring as he yearns for final release.
