- the Eberron novels.
Tzaryan Rrac is an Oni (Ogre Mage) and a warlord of Droaam. He was the first to embrace the rule of the Daughters of Sora Kell, and was richly rewarded with territory in southern Droaam. His domain stretches from the Watching Wood's southern edge to the Thunder Sea. Most of his subjects are orcs, grouped in several tribes and lorded over by Rrac's ogre followers. He also claims lordship over a number of the Watching Wood's dark fey, as well as a group of gnolls and trolls.
His seat of power is Tzaryan Keep.
Politics[edit | edit source]
Tzaryan enjoys the peace provided by the hags' rule, but his servitude often grates on him. He is out for himself first and foremost, and liable to turn on the sisters if the price is right. For now he bides his time and contents him with his current position, as he knows he could never beat the hags on his own.
His quick loyalty at Droaam's founding earned him many rewards, and as a result, today he is one of the strongest and most respected warlords of the nation.
Arcane Studies[edit | edit source]
Tzaryan, much like other oni, has a deep fascination with the esoteric and magical arts, with a particular interest in artifacts from the Dhakaani Empire, the war against the daelkyr or from the Age of Demons. He often sends out his followers to procure such items. He also has a few well-placed followers within Daask, which he uses to keep tabs on prominent explorers and to manipulate the resources of the Morgrave University.
Novels[edit | edit source]
Tzaryen is briefly featured in the Eberron novel, The Queen of Stone.
