Alakara Pharn is a name only, spoken several times to the party during their excursions to The Underdark. Allegedly some sort of drow general, famous primarily for his failure. Commanded an army of drow in a war against the surface dwelling elves, and resorted to using a powerful magic item, one that slew both elf and drow alike in a massacre. He was never heard from since, and was assumed to either be dead by the item’s hand, or fled to exile in shame.
Highly suspected that this is the true identity of Lich
