* RedRightHand: Mordath's evil nature warped the Sigil he received, so instead of a red-and-yellow yin-yang symbol it was entirely red. Receiving the Sigil in the first place brought him BackFromTheDead, so he's also a zombie.

* OfferedTheCrown: In the prologue, the hero Ayden rallied an army and defeated the Dark Lord Mordath and personally struck down the villain with a magical arrow. His army then asked him to become their new king. Ayden refused, stating that he was a king once, and not a very good one. He then vanished into the horizon, promising that he would return if needed.

Sojourn is a HeroicFantasy comic book written by Ron Marz - and then, after 24 issues, Ian Edginton - and illustrated by Greg Land. The story is set in a StandardFantasySetting which is beset by a DarkLord, Mordath, who came back from the dead. It follows the journey of two archers, Arwyn and Gareth, who are accompanied by Arwyn's dog, Kreeg, and helped by a mysterious sorceress, Neven. They must find the five fragments of an arrow once killed Mordath to end his rule once and for all, while they are ceaselessly chased by Mordath's trolls.

Sojourn is also part of Creator/CrossGen's Sigilverse. Unfortunately, after 35 issues (including a prequel) it was cancelled due to Creator/CrossGen's bankcrupcy in 2004.
