The Ashen Crown, the Lords of Madness, and the Queen of Death
Morgrave University, professor of antiquities
Professor Gydd Nephret is a half-elven professor of antiquities at Morgave University and an expert on the ancient goblin empire of Dhakaan. The party first met her when a demon summoned by Ijavik tried to kill her and the party at a remembrance ceremony. Ijavik’s demon targeted her presumably because of the part she was prophesied by Arik Blacktree to play in leading to the Queen of Death ending the world. Gydd found the circlet of the Ashen Crown in a dig near the border of the goblin nation of Darguun. She was kidnapped by winged skeletons under the command of Mallora but was later rescued by the party and has been on sabbatical since.
