A scion of a powerful demon lord, but now permanently banished to the Material Plane, Treerazer is a hugely powerful nascent demon lord who has twisted the land, creatures, and flora around his adopted home for hundreds of years. Treerazer's unholy symbol is a bleeding tree split in half.[1]

Appearance

Treerazer is a huge creature towering well over most humanoids and even over many giants at twenty feet tall. He looks like some sort of demonic dinosaur that has sprouted huge dragon-like wings. Wherever he walks a trail of small, diseased mushrooms spring up in his wake, only to disintegrate back into filth moments later. Any living creature near to Treerazer is likely to start sprouting fungus from its skin. In his clawed hands he wields his personal weapon, Blackaxe, which is carved from obsidian and constantly drips acid from its chipped, uneven blade.[2][1]

History

Treerazer began life in the Abyss, but little is known of his exploits as a demon before his ascension. Whatever he did, it impressed his Lord (and possibly father) Cyth-V'sug enough to risk raising him to the role of a nascent demon lord. Cyth-V'sug's gamble did not pay off, however, as Treerazer was an ambitious creature and attempted to usurp his lord's position. Exactly what transpired is difficult to determine. Certainly, Cyth-V'sug was not overcome, but whether the demon lord banished him to Golarion[3] or Treerazer fled there to evade his former master[1] is a question for debate. In any case, his exile effectively "froze" Treerazer's ascension to a demon lord, although he is capable of granting divine spells to worshipers. Being so completely severed from the Abyss has had an interesting side effect: if Treerazer is killed, his essence will not return to the Abyss—his death would be permanent.[4]

Banished to Golarion sometime during the Age of Darkness, Treerazer found Golarion to his liking and spent many centuries wandering its many nations. It was not until 2497 AR that he discovered the land of Kyonin and learned of the exodus of the elves. When he learned of the Sovyrian Stone, Treerazer concocted a plan to obtain it and use its power to regain access to the Abyss. He was foiled by the return of the elves in 2632 AR, but they could not destroy Treerazer, instead pushing him and his forces back to the Tanglebriar in southern Kyonin.[5] Here he has waited within his fortress, the massive twisted tree known as the Witchbole, serving as the bogeyman of elven culture—a tale with which to scare elven children that is, unfortunately, all too real.[1][4]

Treerazer's cults

Secret cabals worship Treerazer within Kyonin, but are quite rare outside of the elven nation. Where they do exist, they are quite secretive, but also quite sadistic, eager to sacrifice anyone who does not pay proper homage to the Lord of the Blasted Tarn.[1]

Servants

The glabrezu demon Mokravud is one of Treerazer's lieutenants, and unusually for his type, practices great patience and subtlety when targeting his victims. He has served the Lord of the Blasted Tarn for centuries, and prefers going after select elven officers, rather than decimating entire platoons.[6] Another hezrou in Treerazer's service is Vamollaroth, a gigantic member of his species, who is known to the elves of Kyonin as the Rancorous Wrath.[7]
