-Axemines summoned three Ur-Enduk, demonic progeny of Gylgarid, and commanded a coven of his lower cleracy, 14 in total, to fight to the death. The three survivors were then possessed by the demonic Minotaur spirits, and set to track down the vessel of Gylgarid’s revival, Marcellus Vega. Two of the three Ur-Enduk returned upon their ultimately unsuccessful mission. But one of them has taken the failure quite personally. Identifying itself as Menaphus, the demon has formed a powerful symbiotic bond with a huntsman of the order, Gohji. Marcellus and her powerful magical blood remain a priority for the two.
-Axemines was working in tandem with the self-proclaimed exarch of Gylgarid, Jesse’garid. The half-Tauren elf priestess utilized a physical pierce of Gylgarid’s body, a previous failed attempt at his summoning, to begin drawing Entropic extraplanar energy into the world. Unbeknownst to Axemines, this false priestess, known as Jesse Krahd, was trapping the essence as the first step in reviving her father, the aspect known as Taurus Krahd. A descendant of the same cursed lineage as the demon minotaur, Taurus’ order has drawn upon this blood synergy to begin the process of his return. Before it could be completed, Jesse’s subterfuge was discovered and she and her retinue were chased from the island.
