Grasp of Orcus
The Malvera Family
The Malveras are a family of wealthy aristocrats who held sway over the city of Worldend for centuries, thanks to their enslavement of The Resurrector who, in turn, empowered the Peacekeepers. This all came crashing down around them when the party disrupted The Resurrector’s powers, making the Peacekeepers vulnerable to attack and resulting in a citywide riot. Simutaneously, Melech led an army of Desertkin in an invasion of Worldend, with which the party helped him. By the end of the day, the city was in ruins, the Resurrector has been banished, the Peacekeepers were destroyed, and the Malveras’ power was shatterd.
Chloe Malvera, though initially antagonistic toward the party, was seduced by Urn Elrich on the day of the battle. She revealed to him (and later to the rest of the party) that The Resurrector was actually an aspect of Orcus whose mind and memory had been corrupted to make him unaware of this fact and ensure his fealty to the Malveras. She pleaded with them not to interfere, lest the Resurrector recover his memory and release the full evil might of Orcus upon the world. The party interfered anyway, but were able to banish the Resurrector back to the Abyss before he gained full strength.
Urn Elrich rescued Chloe from execution by an angry mob in the ruins of Worldend, and the two of them rode off together. Later, Urn rejoined the party claiming that he was “in the doghouse” with Chloe. Nothing more has been heard of her since.
