At 648 years old Madriux is still going strong. He is retired, but his knowledge is extensive. His spellcasting ability and his ability to entertain guests is legendary. He acts as an advisor to any good creatures who asks for advice. He is a special advisor to the High Council of Sylvania and to Queen Kasiya. He borders on omniscient and people often accuse him of reading their thoughts (thanks to a sense motive check of +20).
During his youth, Madriux travelled to both the inner and outer planes. His knowledge of the planes, gods and history (both on the planes and in Korovia) is extremely extensive.
Madriux is physically weak and somewhat fragile. He is surprisingly robust thanks to his epic toughness. Using his Ring of Polymorph Self he can transform into a variety of more powerful creatures or use it to escape. By himself, he can still pack a punch with his magical quarterstaff (and can transform into an ogre or troll to use it more efficiently). He is arguably still one of the best quarterstaff fighters in Korovia and beyond (and is just as skilled with two daggers or two shortswords).
Madriux's cohort is a storm giant called Prometheus, who acts as his bodyguard. His followers number in the hundreds (639 followers ranging in level from 1st to 8th) and do everything from cook his food to making sure that no one tries to assassinate him.
