"I stared into the abyss and found what stared back… wanting."
―Translation of the Kabbalis Book of Darkness, widely attributed to the young Dead King[1]

Neshamah Be-Iakim is the current holder of the Name Dead King. The name is Ashkaran. He is known under the name Trismegistus in Praes. 


He was born as part of the royal family of the Kingship of Sephirah, one of the many children of king Iakim.[2] Through a complicated plan involving a plague and an invasion of the People of the Wolf, he became king and used his new position to arrange the grand ritual that would lead to him becoming the Dead King.

He is immortal and may be a god. He lives in Serenity and can most likely only enter Creation when invited.

His coat-of-arms is a circle of silver stars around a pale crown. [3]
