The Storm King, Ruler of Iz


The powerful balor demon Khorramzadeh rules the city of Iz in the Worldwound. He is known as the Storm King, as his form is bathed in lightning rather than the fire usual to balors.

He is one of the two most powerful of the Worldwound’s many warlords—the other is the marilith Zuhra Aponavicius. His notoriety has risen in recent years, since his forces nearly managed to destroy one of the Wardstones that keep the demons out of Kenabres, enabling demonic forces to enter Mendev for the first time in a generation.

The attack ultimately failed, but the leaders of Mendev are worried that the Storm King’s gain in prestige may enable him to unite a sizeable part of the Worldwound’s demonic hordes against them. Their response to this threat was to call the Fourth Mendevian Crusade.

Alas, this crusade failed to weaken the forces or resolve the storm king, who launched a terrible attack against Kenabres destroying its Wardstone in an attack known as Black Armasse.


Demonic scholars are at a loss to describe when or where Khorramzadeh came from. His overwhelming power may be due to his patronage by Deskari, but none can say for sure.
