One of the first to receive Illithya’s gift of eternal life as a vampire, the brutal knight Lord Edsekk became one of the first generals in Illythya’s Brood. As centuries passed and the tedium of immortality set in, Lord Edsekk was no longer satisfied with the vast powers bequeathed to him as a vampire. Edsekk's ambition drove him to seek out the dark sorcerers Azhar and Zazhar and strike a deal to obtain more power. He bartered the lives of one hundred of his men to the agents of Poxxus for an enchanted suit of armor that possessed immense power and near invulnerability. What Edsekk did not know was that he had been tricked into wearing a suit of armor infused with a parasitic spell that slowly consumed his lifeforce, causing him to vanish from inside the armor. The Blood Armor, known to the people as Vorgus Vermillius, now roams from victim to victim, leaving behind only the memory of the warriors it devours.

Note - this figure was the "Fantastic Exclusive" character from the first Mythic Legions Kickstarter. He was created by fans through a voting process on the Four Horsemen's website. Every aspect of the character, from the various pieces of armor he wears, to his head and weapons, to the "blood armor" paints, was decided on by fans to create the cool enchanted armor that was eventually released as Vorgus Vermillius.
