Info: Heldras has recently survived a rough age as a king; recently possessed by the powerful Beqidum Semmet until executed by the pretender Halen Dreward, Argrym took the throne at 18 when his father died in a riding accident. He has an only son Krynfel. Argrym married young for love, and his wife is deceased, dying in a suspicious riding accident. The death of a beloved wife was something he and his friend King Ereme have in common. He has an uncle named Marcav who is first knight of the Castelarn. Argrym's throne was returned to him after being Resurrected by Valis Urik.
Immediate Family: Prince Krynfel Heldras, heir to the throne, NPC
King's Page: Penbren
Dumarc: Crown Prince Krynfel (A Dumarc is heir to the crown)
King's Guard: commander Corsetti Arsandar (Namas) and Captain Serif Skaaldun (Shaamae). This guard stays by the king to guard him and is a force to be reckoned with. There are 20 king's guards under Cor and Skaal's command.
Hair: auburn with black streaks.
Skin: medium brown.
Build: slightly overweight but muscular.
Outstanding Features: Deep scar on neck, mark of Semmet on inner thigh (from the residual traits the beqidum that possessed him left behind)
Though fairly tall; Argrym is an unimpressive looking man when not vested in regal fineries and could blend in easily in a crowd if dressed plainly. Probably the most striking things about him are his sky-blue eyes and long, wavy, black streaked auburn hair. He now has a deep scar on his neck from being beheaded.

The Beqidum: The Formless Ones All of the Beqidum have powerful possession abilities and many had possessed officers of Hawker's Fort when Dreward overthrew Heldras and hold a few of them still.
Beqidum Info: The greatest power of the Beqidum is possession, and it can do so from spirit, or by touch. Each Beqidum commands its own unique powers (see Maelmorda page: Acheron Page). By spirit its possession is far more powerful (by +4 d6). Whatever they possess, beit animal or sentient, they become physically, while spirit commands their host's will and deeds. When they abandon a host, the host has no memory whatsoever of being possessed.
Because the Beqidum do not wish to expose themselves, they will only use those powers they command in seclusion, never in witness of anyone who might grow suspicious, unless the individual they possess was known to command such powers. Most Beqidum value the forms they possess immensely, for having no form is its own hell.
Lucifuges: Arch devil of Ether, he commands air and shadow elements. Light repulses him and his form is the spirit of night. Like all formless he has no form but spirit. This angel is extremely vindictive and can cause death with his touch or breath. Like the rest of his kind he can also possess the living.
Tephros: This spirit can bring darkness and fire and can assume those ethereal forms. He is also an air elementalist
Phaux: the trickster. Through his ages in the pit he developed a strange sense of humor and became a master of tricks, jinxes, witty curses, and pranks. Arch master of conjuration, the illusory and phantasms
Mog: pure evil, he enjoys possessing people just to corrupt them and then abandons their coils to observe the results from the body of another person, cat, dog, or bird. Presently possessing Prince Byron Decasey of Demon Horn Lake. While the other Beqidum have sworn to serve the Morning Star, Mog has not; His allegiance is sworn to Sammael.
Haashi: Perhaps the most moral among the Beqidum, his ethics sometimes conflict with his duties.
Ikael: It depresses Ikael that he has no form of his own and so he seeks unique and beautiful specimens to possess. He seeks to steal the forms and lives of rich young noblemen to live through them as long as he can
Odri: this spirit is cynical and often expresses sarcasm through his wit. He commands the shadow path and curses, using curses to pass judgment and test character
Semyaza, Semmet: This beqidum is very curious and will attempt to possess almost anything to unearth its secrets. He is the wisest of his order and his advice is often sought by them. He can also read the mind of anything without his presence being felt. He is a powerful telepath, telekinetic and wizard.
Enkur: This powerful spirit is a master of earth, shadow, and abyss elements. This formless one deceives to discover and is a hard judge of character who is prone to devour the souls of those he possesses if they fail his judgment.

Average Mentality: Heldras is very human and has an average man's flaws, his will is not impressively strong, he lacks wisdom, his courage can fail him, he can trust and fall under the influences of the wrong people. His youth as a king encourages these weaknesses. Without Semmet, Heldras is unremarkable, with him, he is capable of greatness at a far younger age than Heldras could ever hope to achieve.
Enemies: anyone who wishes to dethrone Heldras could prove an enemy to him. Gabrian, the enemy of the free world is his current enemy.
Possessed: the king is possessed by a powerful and wise Beqidum. This possession is a great secret and must remain so else Semmet's existance and the King's reputation be placed at risk. The only ones who knows Semmet possesses the king are his Beqidum brothers, who possess others around him thereby serving him, and the Morning Star.
