HEROES OF IMPILTUR
Texotl was a wise-man of the new Hucan Empire that resided over the domains of spirituality and the dead. The heroes first heard of him when they rescued Ian Silvermane from the legions of undead that the necromancer had summoned to track Ian down. Ian’s gift to Hucan, which granted the child independence and free-will, had greatly angered Texotl. Later on the wise-council of Hucan indicated that Texotl reacted only as his nature as one who embraces death dictated. However ramblings by Texotl himself when the heroes confronted him years later seem to indicate that some plot to gain total control over Hucan was afoot (the ritual Ian interrupted already gave the wise-men some measure of control over the boy). The heroes defeated some of Texotl’s undead and rescued Ian from the Hucan ruins.
When the adventurers returned to the ruins years later, Texotl and his undead servants attacked them while they were investigating the Hall of Heroes. Texotl was apparently still angry at them for rescuing Ian. The necromancer indicated that had he been able to capture and kill Ian that would have somehow allowed him to control Hucan. The party defeated his undead forces and killed Texotl.
