Info[edit | edit source]

Once a councilor to the Moon Queen, Pestilence betrayed his people -- for as a male, he could never have come to rule them himself. With his own powers augmented by the Hellbourne, he is as strong as the queen he served in the past. But his arts are unholy: mindless, ravenous insects he calls forth, cruel and violent skills he deploys.
