Vidrick is one of the most feared figures of Nirros. He led Count Elric's armies as the first commander, as well as serving as the head torturer of the Black Citadel. Legends state that this massive, terrifying warrior has demon blood flowing through his veins. So feared is he that Vidrick's name is used as a threat to scold children.
