Zlortharkis is a great kraken that has been raising an empire deep beneath the Thunder Sea. Clans of sahuagin have flocked to his cause, worshiping him like a god of old.[1]


The many sailors of the city of Stormreach have theories as to the origins of Zlortharkis. Some say he is one of the original krakens that fought the dragons during the Age of Demons, while others believe him to be the reincarnation of Lyran, the firstborn founder of House Lyrandar said to have been turned into a great kraken after his death.

Whatever his origins, Zlortharkis has organized a great number of aquatic creatures, including sahuagin and kuo-toa, deep beneath the Thunder Sea between Sharn and Stormreach. The agents of Zlortharkis have been destroying ships traveling to Stormreach, causing problems with supplies from Khorvaire.

A number of agents of Stormreach seek to hunt down Zlortharkis. They are joined by clans of sahuagin, who see the worship of Zlortharkis as an affront to the Devourer.[1]

Appearance & PersonalityEdit

Very few surface-dwellers have actually seen Zlortharkis, but instead have faced his tentacles emerging deep beneath the waves.[1]
