WMG: Lone Wolf
The Ancient King buried in the Graveyard on the Ancients was an evil Rival to the Darklords who lost to them.In the first book; if you screw around with his bones and fail at certain skills; a portal opens that sucks you into Naar's Dark World; a Fate Worse Than Death that ends the game. However, if you have a Vordak gem, the bones and the gem destroy each other.
- This King was an ancient evil similar to the Deathlord, but he lost favor to Naar over the Darklords. Imprisoned, he can still send graverobbers to Naar for some respite for punishment of not living up to Naar's expectations; but he isn't allowed to touch Naar's current champions. If Lone Wolf has a Vordak Gem; the King destroys it out of his hatred for his rivals. This, however, breaches the rules, and Naar eradicates him.
The sword Anathema was created from the shards of Helshezag.Lone Wolf can get an Evil Weapon; Helshezag, at the end of the second set of books. If wielded in the The Legacy of Vashna, the Evil Weapon the Deathstaff destroys it, apparently out of competition. Many people speculate that if Lone Wolf had kept Helshezag at the monastary for that adventure, he would still have it; but it is not in the Old Save Bonus in later books regardless. In the Updated Re-release of Wolf's Bane, a mini-story regarding the reoccuring Heroic Willpower heroic zombie Dire can be given the "Anathema" by Lone Wolf, a weapon that absorbs life force; even that of the wielder. Lone Wolf explains that Anathema was "accidentally" made by their smiths attempting to make magic weapons. (Which would eventually occur in the New Order series.) Even if Lone Wolf had prevents Helshezag (or the Dagger of Vashna) from being blasted into shards, the Kai Monstary's association with the Elder Magic of Dessi meant that they finally learned how to destroy the occasional Artifact of Doom or Evil Weapon that Lone Wolf would find. Either way, Helshezag was in shards after Legacy of Vashna. Some Kai smith thought he would be clever, and decided to try and "reverse-engineer" a weapon of Good out of it. ...it didn't quite work as planned. The sword no longer was beholden to Naar, but it was still anti-life. It would make a good weapon for a Good zombie, but what are the chances of that happening?
