A wizard researching elemental lore
- Discovered a shrine to elemental powers.
- Corrupted some myconids (surely no surface dweller would have heard of them) and used them to deal with interlopers while he was researching the shrine.
- Hired a tribe of orcs to further defend the cavern complex.
- Died spectacularly when the elemental orb imploded and sucked his body into the vortex.
