The Priest-King Kortash Khain it the autocratic ruler of the hidden ghoul city of Nemret Noktoria in Sekamina, which he founded. He is also Golarion's High Priest of the demon lord Kabriri, patron to all ghouls, and is one of the most powerful spellcasters on the planet. He rarely leaves the city, which he someday hopes to turn into an unliving version of Kabriri's Abyssal realm of Everglut.[1]
