Zealous elementalist with incredible ambitions
Weapons: Tooth of Cryonax, longsword, shield.
Location: Four Peaks.
During his adolescence, Rakarn came to despise Ogremoch and Imix. He concluded Ben-Hadar, Prince of Elemental Water, was not doing enough to stop their evil agenda, and aspired to usurp Ben-Hadar and destroy the Princes of Elemental Evil. To that end, he set out on a quest for ultimate elemental power.
Quest for the Elemental Orbs
Rakarn learned of the Water Orb hidden in the Temple of the Marids and made his way there, where he encountered and allied with the Heroes of the Elemental Chaos. The Heroes gave the Water Orb to Alraii, but Rakarn desired to steal it back.
After obtaining a Lightning Skiff, Rakarn dragged the Heroes to the City of Brass, where he led Louis Fisher, the only other adventurer whom Alraii had not met, to gain an audience with Alraii. Rakarn fast-talked Alraii and agreed to a contract to retrieve the Earth Orb, in exchange for the brief use of it and the Water Orb. Having learned of the other four Elemental Orbs, Rakarn desired to obtain all four of them from Alraii.
Rakarn’s scheme was interrupted by Bashamgurda, who held three of the four orbs and sought to retrieve the Earth Orb from the Heroes. During the conflict, Rakarn attuned himself to the Water Orb, and used it to help kill Bashamgurda. Alraii asked him to hand it over in exchange for a wish. Instead, Rakarn convinced Alraii to lend him the other three Elemental Orbs, promising only to use them for good. He then wished to be transported to the domain of Ogremoch to defeat the Prince of Elemental Earth.
The outcome of Rakarn’s battle with Ogremoch, if it is even finished, is unknown. According to the Prince, it should be well possible for a mortal with sufficient amounts of power to defeat a primordial, even an archomental such as Ogremoch.
Rakarn has been immortalized in the carvings of Rigmir’s giants, although they do not regard him as a hero, as they owe their allegiance to Ogremoch.
