HEROES OF IMPILTUR
Graz’zt, called the “Dark Prince”, is a demon lord and one of the most powerful fiends in the Abyss. He was one of the demons that had their name inscribed on the Demonstone and had a level of the Demontower devoted to him. In the conflict atop the Demontower, the heroes were able to close the portal to the Abyss before Tharos was able to summon an aspect of Graz’zt to battle them. He is considered the comeliest demon in the Abyss, and dresses in the most expensive and elegant finery on the entire plane. Graz’zt is a skilled politician, and when possible he prefers to solve confrontations with diplomacy and deals. Graz’zt enjoys the game of using words and false promises to trick his foes into serving his needs, especially when he can convince them that they have gotten the upper hand. His preference for political solutions and talking his way out of confrontations is in no way born of a need to avoid combat, though, for Graz’zt is among the deadliest demons of the Abyss. Graz’zt commands the 45th, 46th, and 47th layers of the Abyss from his Argent Palace and is now the only demon lord in the Abyss to completely command more than one layer. He even managed to retain command of this triple realm, despite the fact that he recently spent several years imprisoned on the Material Plane by the witch-queen Iggwilv. Graz’zt ultimately returned to the Abyss, but rumors abound that he did, in fact, fall in love with his captor. His level of the Demontower resembled a gigantic chess-board. After the battle, Ghryll realized that he had a demonic-looking chess-piece in his possession that would let him to summon and bargain with Graz’zt.
