Bio:

The slimy advisor of Cachlain, Sovacles seems to have the Stone-skinned King under his mental command. The king nods dumbly at everything the bald human says, even though Sovacles’ refusal to hear out the heroes may doom the entire kingdom.

Sovacles recently came into power when the king’s previous advisor, a cyclops named Talyrin, disappeared somehow. Just what is he up to?

As of the end of Chapter 10, the Champions discovered that Sovacles was truly Virizan, the green exarch of Tiamat. After his human form was destroyed, he began to alternate between four additional forms, with the intent of destroying Cachlain and his followers so that Sangwyr could take over, allowing Tiamat to keep the portals open for the githyanki.
