Kotharel the Harvester is a Radiant Idol, a fallen angel cast out from the plane of Syrania. After "harvesting" souls for 23 years, Kotharel was brought down by the knights of Dol Arrah and sentenced to Dreadhold prison.
Once an angel of Syrania, Kotharel was cast out by the host in the year 710 YK. Banished to Eberron, Kotharel became the self-stylized "harvester of souls." Seeing himself as the right hand of the Keeper, Kotharel inspired a cult that lasted for 23 years. He and his cult would "harvest" the souls of innocents, sending them to the Keeper. In the year 733 YK, the knights of Dol Arrah tracked Kotharel to Metrol in Cyre. The knights defeated Kotharel's cult, but could not kill the immortal enemy. The knights brought Kotharel to Dreadhold prison, an inescapable prison run by House Kundarak. They placed Kotharel in the Deep Ward, a portion of Dreadhold with a permanent anti-magic field. Kotharel sits in Dreadhold to this day.
Kotharel possesses all the abilities of a radiant idol, but he is much stronger than others of his kind. Unlike others of equal power, though, Kotharel is still size Large, not size Huge. Because of his loyalty to the Keeper, any weapon wielded by Kotharel becomes a Keeper's Fang.
