The Shattered Staff
A tiefling paladin struggling to redevelop his moral code.
A tiefling paladin who formerly served Asmodeus. He grew up with his parents in a mansion on the outskirts of a town, but was weary of others as tieflings were widely feared. Eventually, the nearby town rioted and burned the mansion down. Archmonde’s parents were killed in the attack, but Archmonde fled to the forest. After a few days of wandering the forest, Archmonde was near death until the priests of Asmodeus discovered him. They used his hate and fear to shape him into a dark paladin, the physical avatar of the will of Asmodeus. After many years, Archmonde realized he wasn’t completely corrupted by hate, and left Asmodeus’ command. He then traveled to Seawell, where he met up with the adventurers.
