Belketh is extremely old and wise, even by Angel standards. It was he that rediscovered the art of necromancy in 461 YSD and taught it to Wizards of the Seven Cities.His research is not at an end: he hasn't found yet the path of enlightenment travelled by the wizard Sar-Elam, the Seventh Dragon.
Belketh fought in the Elder Wars, and though a courageous warrior, was one of the first Angels to condemn the fight with the Faceless as unholy.
Cast out for disloyal thinking, he went into seclusion and studied Dark Magic to better understand how Sar-Elam was able to travel through the Void.
He holds the title of Archon amongst the Necromancers, but gave up leadership when the school of Necromancy became the religious cult of the Mother Namtaru. He still holds tremendous influence, and will take time away from his personal quest to deal with any major danger to his fellow Necromancers. Two of his students, Vein and Sandro, would have incredible destinies and gain Ashanwide renown. Belketh is not easily rattled, for he has seen it all.
