Born with an insatiable hunger no earthly nourishment could satisfy, the Judge-King grew to be a mad and tyrannical ruler; hellbent on fulfilling whatever debauchery could sate the gnawing emptiness inside of him. Early in his reign he was approached by an ancient Dark Elf mystic who promised him a cure for his hunger in return for the alliance of his kingdom. The Judge-King accepted and was taught the ways of consuming the souls of men.
Instilled with this great and terrible power the Judge-King pledged himself to the House of Doombringer, whom the mystic represented, and embraced the doctrines of tyrannical order preached by the scions of the Doom Spire. He saw that it was now his moral duty to purge his kingdom of sinners. He soon found however that souls would only sate his hunger for a while, forever needing more and more to sustain him. A reign of terror that lasted decades was brought about and thousands saw their souls torn from their bodies for even the slightest indiscretion. Whilst the High-Kings of Khemri feared the unholy powers of the Judge-King and his elven allies, the Mortuary Cult soon moved them to action and a great host was assembled to bring the mad king to justice.
The Judge-King upon hearing that Khemri moved against him proclaimed all life to be a form of physical sin and that he would consume the world. An assassins blade soon put an end to his madness and the succession of his youngest son to the throne led to a period of peace and prosperity for Zandri. Thousands of years later and reanimated as the living-dead the Judge-King returns from the forgotten depths of darkest history to bring his terrible soul-hunger once more to the realms of the living. Called upon by Doombringer to add his Tomb-ships to the Doom Spire Fleet, the Judge-King seeks to satisfy his hunger on the souls of all the miserable sinners the world has produced.
