So, we meet again. The usurper and my erstwhile slave come to claim my Battle Tower.

Laiken is a human necromancer who has lived for several centuries but makes his appearance in 1300 AD.


Laiken is the most powerful necromancer in Rivellon and according to Lord Lovis, his power is second only to Damian himself (whom he considers a rival). He is also the client to many of the bandits that roam Rivellon, who take whatever loot they find and give their bodyparts to Laiken so that he may use them for his necromantic experiments and thus bolster his undead army.

In order for Laiken to have taken control of the Battle Tower, some 200 years after Maxos vanished, he needed to undo the spell that Maxos had placed upon it. To do so, he needed the blood of a loved one. That special someone was Sassan, his personal and reluctant concubine. Due to her not satisfying him, and being the insane, perverted wizard that he is, he proceeded to gather female bodyparts and create a replica of his beloved Sassan. This "new" Sassan was not nearly as attractive as the old one, but even so she satisfied Laiken's needs.

As Sentinel Island was now under Laiken's rule, the island changed from a wondrous land filled with draconic magic, to a mad circus of death and insanity. In order to achieve immortality, Laiken Soul Forged himself with the immortal demon, Razakel.

The ex-Dragon Slayer chances upon him during The Temple of Doom quest after entering the portal in the Bandit's Cave. At first, he assumes the Dragon Slayer had came to apply as his new corpse delivery person. He quickly panicked when he realizes the new Dragon Knight had come for his Battle Tower. He then shoved the bemused Dragon Knight back to the portal and collapses the ceiling. Such action was futile, for he would still meet his end upon the next time meeting the Dragon Knight.

Praise be that this hour has come. I have filled books with fantasies of torturing you: a library of pain. Finally I can put theory to practice.
