War of the Worldwound
Usher of the Apocalypse
The demon lord Deskari (pronounced des-KAR-ee) is said to be the Lord of the Locust Host and the Usher of the Apocalypse.
Deskari is depicted as a horrible beast, human from the waist up and locust-like below. Semi-solid wings—composed of clouds of locusts—protrude from his human back and he carries the terrible scythe Riftcarver in his fleshy hands.
Deskari is said to be a son of Pazuzu; he was born when Pazuzu exhaled his first breath on the Material Plane. Historically, his cult was active in the barbarian nation of Sarkoris until he and his followers were driven into the Lake of Mists and Veils by—then mortal—Aroden in one of his many miraculous deeds. Aroden’s death and the coming of the Age of Lost Omens has allowed Deskari to reassert his influence in the region again in the much more obvious form of the Worldwound.
Cult & Worshippers
As mentioned above Deskari’s cult is most powerful in the lands that once made up the nation of Sarkoris, this region however is now the demonic wasteland of the Worldwound and as such no longer harbours many of Deskari’s mortal worshippers.
In the chaos of eastern Galt, a Deskari-worshipping cult of diseased barbarians accompanied Urlash Bonerender, unleashing a plague upon the population of Stavintower.
