Other Dungeon Dwellers
The Golem: Nobody knows where the Lich King acquired the Stone Golem that roams the lower levels, but it's been down there long enough to have vegetation growing out of the cracks in its body, and several generations of mice have lived and died in a hollow in its left calf. Slug-guts often stops to talk to it whenever he manages to peel himself away from his hoard. The Golem doesn't talk back, but the troll seems very invested in the conversation.
Sparky: One of the master's favorite beasts - a ghoulish, bear-sized, five-legged abomination of rotting flesh with enormous teeth and claws, panther-like speed and reflexes, an undying hunger for the flesh of the living, and a child-like intellect and temper. Rumored among some to have been the Lich King's pet dog from back when he was mortal, augmented over the years with transfusions of flesh and magickally augmented brains. Or just a particularly entertaining creation. Can speak, usually just growls. Loves eating fresh meat, loves The Master, easily entertained, and often plays with his food. Sometimes goes to hunting goblins and other lesser creatures, when he gets bored and thinks the Master isn't looking.
Lady Desdomina: Unlike Sslth'hool, Lady Desdomina is one of the Lich King's staunchest allies. Rumored to be one of his lovers from the King's previous life, the sly and seductive vampire keeps a close eye on the Illithid, casually foiling his plots and reporting his insubordination to their Master. When not tailing the tentacled creature, Desdomina spends her time keeping track of the dungeon's inhabitants, using her clever tongue and vaunted position to keep herself safe. She's been having a hell of a time with this task in the King's absence, and Sslth'hool tries to encourage as much commotion as possible, to give it more time to hatch its plan.
Bogart lost both of his eyes to a particularly accurate elf archer three weeks back, and he seems to have developed a remarkable sixth sense to compensate: Bogart can sense the presence of magic! Sslth'hool has been using him as a scout and messenger, allowing him to hold his Walking Eye so that he can pick through his thoughts while he goes about his tasks.
Cook: The assistant to the torturer. Cook has an unhealthy relationship with cookies. He is paid a bounty of cookies for each prisoner tortured. His impatience knows no bounds and he will often rip the head off of a prisoner with one hand while holding out his other to demand payment. Cook is actually a fairly nice fellow; if not a little simple. Employing Cook this way is akin to asking a child to pull the legs off of a fly in exchange for a treat.
Celion, Elven Huntress: No one knows how the Lich King tempted Celion into his service. Muckmuck only knows that Celion loves to kill goblins for sport. While he doesn't really care about his fallen brethren, Muckmuck still remembers the ancient grudge goblins and elves once had, even if most goblins today don't care about the old stories. In this time of flux, Celion must die.
Leeloo the Ghost Adventuress: Leeloo is very, very dead. This makes her surprisingly tolerable company. Buggerbear had nothing to do with her dying (for once) and, after a few failed attempts at exorcism, he let her hang out at his rooms. Sure, she does help adventurers time to time, but when she doesn't, she's the only one in the dungeon not afraid of him and she has a lovely singing voice.
The Wizards Three: Cyan, Yellow, and Magenta are several of the Lich King's most powerful subjects. Each a powerful wizard, together there nearly unstoppable. Like all wizards and other high skill positions, the three are a thorn in Ritz's side.
