Scourges are a designation for the Revenants that the Named fighting on the lakeside fronts in the war against the Dead King found to be the greatest threats. They are the strongest and hardest to kill among the Revenants and are considered to require either a full band of five or one of the greatest champions of the Grand Alliance to handle. While there are at least ten that all agreed on, the matter of who belongs to the group is hotly debated.
Members[edit | edit source]
- Prince of Bones: The leader of the Grey Legion, an army of undead whose ancient bones had been surrounded by a body of wrought iron and steel. He is encased layers upon layers of enchanted metal moved by the necromancy buried safely deep within and thus is extremely hard to kill. He can close still forming Twilight Gates. According to Lycaonese legend, he was an ancient Iron King slain by the Dead King. In Hannoven, it is said that he was Albrecht Papenheim, the Lone Sentinel, who’d held Twilight’s Pass with only a bare bones garrison for a year even as an Alamans foray into Bremen was driven out.
- Pale Knight/Axeman: Adehard Barthen, formerly the White Knight. He uses axes and pale plate armor. He either has enchanted armor or an aspect related to remaining unmarred. Light, magic, Night and steel do not seem to affect him. He often serves as leader among not only Revenants but also the lesser dead.
- Wolfhound: A Revenant armored from head to toe, with a sculpted helmet of iron in the shape of a wolfhound's head. He can see through illusions and can weaken the effect of aspects and magic. While he has one of the strongest defenses among the Scourges, he does not have a particularly great offense, which is why he is usually partnered with another Scourge, so far, the Hawk, the Mantle and the Varlet.
- Hawk: A ranged Name with an aspect to simply 'kill'. She is weak up close and tends to retreat in close ranged combat with Named.
- Drake: A Revenant with extremely powerful regeneration.
- Tumult/Archmage: A spellcaster on par with Masego and Antigone. It is fond of using storms and weather.
- Stitcher: A Revenant that manipulates flesh. She was surrounded by the flesh of others. She used to be a healer before being turned into a Revenant, according to Hanno. She was slain by Mighty Vesena.
