Chaos Lord Escherion

Escherion's statue

Escherion is a battlemage who is Drakath's first Lord of Chaos. He holds the Staff of Inversion which is alive with the Chaos eye on the tip.


Escherion arrived in Mobius with his army and used his Staff of Inversion, a gift from Drakath himself, to turn everything inside-out, including it's Guardian Tower which he used as a base. His henchmen includes Slugfit, Cyclops Warlord, and Head Gargoyle. His main reason to send his armies throughout the entire Chiral Valley is to look for the Runix Cube, as it is the only thing that can stop his plans. The hero have to go to the locations to retrieve the pieces of the Runix Cube. First in Mobius, then the Faerie Woods, and finally Cornelis. Upon recovering all three pieces, the hero uses the disguise of a pizza delivery guy to infiltrate his tower and fight through the soldiers there. After besting Head Gargoyle, the players finally confront Escherion. They throw the Runix Cube at the Chaos Lord, striking him in the face but having no real effect. Escherion reveals that that the hero misinterpreted his words; the only thing that could stop his plans was not finding the Runix cube. Afterwards, Escherion takes the opportunity to grab the Cube, thank the hero and eject them from the tower, then awakens the Lake Hydra (the first of the "Chaos Beasts" that accompany each Chaos Lord) under orders by Drakath. The hero, however, defeats the hydra by destroying the tower's stabilizers and causing it to fall upon the hydra.

When the Lake Hydra is defeated, the character then goes back to Escherion, who is furious at what the hero has done to his tower. Escherion battles the hero, using the Staff of Inversion to make himself invulernable to attacks. By repeatedly downing the staff, the hero manages to overpower Escherion, ordering him to leave Chiral Valley and never return. After pretending to agree, Escherion tries to use the staff to turn the hero inside out, but the character uses a Mirror Shield found in Cornelis to reflect Escherion's spell back at him. It appears to have no effect, and Escherion resumes attacking, but ends up hitting himself with every spell. When he angrily tries to polymorph the character, he ends up turning himself into a toad, undoing the effects of his inversion spells. The hero realizes that the mirror has caused Esherion's spells to always deflect on himself. With the Chaos Lord stuck in frog form, the hero left their powerless enemy behind. Drakath gets word of this and prepares his next Lord of Chaos after stating that Escherion has served his purpose.

Escherion's frog form was later found in a cage when the players find him and Khasaanda during the final battle against Drakath. Both of them are killed by Drakath in order to release the Queen of Monsters. While in the Chaos Realm, Drakath revived the chaos side of Escherion to fight the players.
