Ruskal Eight-Fingers (358 AC - Spring, 424 AC) dwelt in the town of Blood Eye in 424 AC, and was the master of the Blood Eye Tower. He was granted the tower as a reward by Emperor Ambeoutin XII, for his long and loyal service to the Imperial League. Prior to presiding over Blood Eye, he had been a champion gladiator in the Imperial Arena and had also fought in numerous wars in the name of the minotaur empire. He amassed a great fortune and retired to a life of peace in the small town. One of his few regrets was that in all this time, he had never taken a mate or sired any children.
Other than his servants and his friend and bodyguard Kesh Ak-Chorr, Ruskal lived alone in his tower. He grew increasingly bored with a quiet life, wishing he had perished in battle. To wile away the time, he begun collecting artifacts, amongst which he acquired the statue of the Hooded One.
