Nazrath was born from a failed Kasatha Montauk Project when an experimental drive malfunctioned aboard the Aeythridg . When the ship blinked back into existence, all the crew had died when they fused with the ship. The fusing of an engineer's body with a computer & machinery attracted an old soul into it. Nazrath was sentient enough to be able to limp the ship along until it met another Kasatha craft. For bring home the bodies of their fallen, Nazrath was taken to Aballon to reshape its crude form. There its body was reshaped to resemble that of the engineer whose body Nazrath's soul came into.
