Deacon Wulf was the former Commander of the Order of The Crimson Guard. After an unfortunate war against the followers of Urgathoa, Deacon was assaulted by several Urgathoan priest. Deacon was fatally wounded and stood very close to death as he was approached by his long time friend Lord Karnath. Lord Karnath warned Deacon that his time was near but he could bring Deacon back from his deathbed. Deacon, with rage in his eyes agreed to the contract.
Deacon passed away shortly afterwards. It was during this time Lord Karnath utilized his resources and brought Deacon back. In a ritual akin to the formation of a Graveknight. Deacon was brought back as some abomination, part vampire, part graveknight, but part living. He now lives in a constant state of half undeath and mobilizes his forces in the name of Lord Karnath.
