Castilus was summoned by the wizard Serek, who
ruled the town of "Land's Edge." The wizard desired to
use the demon to further his own power but he made a mistake in
the method of summoning and the demon killed him.
Unfortunately for Castilus, Serek had done certain
portions of the spells correctly and the demon was trapped in the
room he occupied. He was able to reach out with his spells and special
abilities however. He used these to try to corrupt the people of
the castle and Land's Edge so they would release him. He failed
in this and in the end he managed only to destroy or drive away
all the inhabitants of the city.
Now Castilus still waits in the castle, trying
to find a way to get free. When anyone arrives at the castle he
takes the opportunity to manipulate them into freeing him. To do
this he will use his powers to corrupt them or his ability to summon
other creatures to frighten them. He will also attempt to strand
them so that they must give into his demands. If completely frustrated
he may lose his patience and start killing them.

Minor Summoning: Because of the properties
of the summoning room Castilus can summon creatures anywhere in
the castle or town of Land's
Edge. Use the table to the left. Summoned monsters last 3 turns
and the ability may only be used once a turn.
These summoning can be done once every turn but
only last for 3 turns. Thus Castilus can control 3 groups of summoned
creatures at once, he can communicate with them telepathically within
the same distance as the summonings.
Improved Parry: Castilus will not necessarily
attack with all 4 arms in combat. He may attack twice and save the
other 2 arms to block (i.e. parry) up to 2 different attackers.
(add +4 to his AC against up to 2 attackers if you don't use parry)
