Malekith The Witch King
Race: Elf (Druchii)
Occupation: King of Naggaroth
Malekith, also called the Witch King, is the monarch of Naggaroth and the ruler of the Dark Elves or Druchii as they refer to themselves. He is the son of the Phoenix King Aenarion, the greatest Elven hero to have ever lived. Malekith is ancient and powerful beyond mortal reckoning, a being who has lived for thousands upon thousands of years, gathering a great treasure trove of magical power that few can rival within the world.
Long ago, this mighty lord of the Elven race sought to claim the Isles of Ulthuan by sheer force of will, cruelty and bloodshed, but the Flames of Asuryan denied his right to rule as his father's heir and left him scarred by fire and twisted with hatred. Near death, Malekith was taken away and healed by his mother, the sorceress and consort of Aenarion Morathi, and removed to the lands of Nagarythe to recuperate and plot his seizure of power. While there, the horrifically burned Malekith was encased in a suit of magical, black full plate armour, the plates of the suit fusing themselves to Malekith's own tortured flesh.
To the brow of the great horned helmet placed over his head was welded the Circlet of Iron, and with his body transformed, Malekith took the persona of the Destroyer and now sought to reclaim that which was denied to him. In the years since, Malekith has led many great wars against the High Elven usurpers, but each time has been undone by cruel fate or the incompetence of his craven underling.
Yet the Witch King is immortal and knows he will outlast those who foolishly believe themselves his betters. The day is fast approaching where old debts and insults will finally be paid, and Malekith will do anything within his power to hasten its arrival. Malekith firmly believes that if he can't rule Ulthuan, then no one else will.
