One would say Moander was a survivor - if he wasn't technically dead. A respected and charismatic general in the Bull Duchy, he was bored by the countless political intrigues of peacetime. Maybe that's why he let his guard down, allowing a rival to poison him with deadly Manticore venom. Discovering he would die in a matter of hours, Moander devised a desperate plan to cheat death. He managed to obtain a vial of Namtaru venom, the substance imbibed by Necromancers to become immortal Vampires, from the black market of Vradek's Crossing, which he drank without thinking twice. The mixture of the two venoms had a devastating effect on his body, searing his skin and withering his flesh. Transformed into an Undead, he now looked like a raggedy corpse, a walking skeleton; at least, though, he was "alive", and had his revenge on his murderer. Moander then fled the Empire to join the ranks of the Necromancers, where his skills as a general made him as popular as he was during his lifetime.
One of the most skilled commanders of the Necromancer's armies, Moander was neither a Wizard nor Blademage before his transformation into a ghastly Lich. In his former life, he was a respected general of the Bull Duchy, renowned for his quick and decisive thinking on the battlefield. When a rival poisoned him with Manticore venom, Moander lived up to his reputation and promptly drank a vial of Namtaru venom. Moander was right in thinking the Namtaru venom's powers would allow him to cheat death, although the mixture of the two poisons had a devastating effect on his body, turning him into a walking skeleton.
