Description and Personality: Denzaak is a
spectre of unknown origin. Larger than most spectres (even those of equal
power), he stalks the Underdark and tunnels under major cities, using the
power of his scimitar to make short trips through sunlit areas when he
needs to relocate to another place. He has been known to hire himself out
to other powerful undead or necromancers of dire reputation as a spy and
assassin (he is normally paid in living slaves, which he slays via energy
drain and turns into spawn, which he uses to lure out foes or sometimes
trades to necromancers as slaves). He got his name from a habit of using
his scimitar to cut out the hearts of his victims, which he then carries
for a time on the blade (although he cannot actually eat these trophies,
nor does he need to).
Ghostwalk connection: Denzaak was a cool mini that absolutely had to be in Ghostwalk because he looks so freaky. Plus, undead are another key enemy in Ghostwalk, so he fits right in. I might redesign him once the book comes out so he can take advantage of some of the new feats in there.
Here's a link to the mini I use for this character.
