Biography[edit | edit source]

When Lord Merick Farrow's brother Sir Alric died in battle, it was a tragedy for all the Free Cities. However, when Lord Merick struck a deal with the dark powers to get his brother back, it foretold their doom.

Merick Farrow’s desire to raise his brother from the dead led to his exploration of magic, and his necromantic experiments eventually led to his downfall. Corrupted by the power he was able to harness, Merick Farrow now serves as one of the Overlord’s most sinister agents.
