Humct was a western sorcerer who lusted for more power than even his fearsome magics could provide. He attempted to understand and master the ways of Death. His trial-and-error experiments killed hundreds of victims, and Humct was eventually driven from the western lands. The name Humct is now synonymous with the meaninglessness of a wasted life. Priests frighten initiates into obedience by telling them that Humct will carry them into a death of oblivion if they stray from Malkion‘s word. Humct is worshiped only by outcasts and evildoers.
He is illustrated as a gaunt old man, unkempt beard flowing to his belly, dressed in a ragged robe. He is wall-eyed, dirty, and open sores splotch his face and hands.
