Wulgreth was an Ascalhi wizard, consorted with baatezu in defiance of the ancient pact his ancestors had made with the Eaerlanni elves to abandon the dark arts of the Netherese . Wulgreth of Ascalhorn bested his rivals for six decades because of the help of his baatezu. In turn, his rivals summoned the aid of tanar'ri for their own defense, which killed the baatezu, conquered all of Ascalhorn (which then became known as Hellgate Keep ), and overran the elven kingdom of Eaerlann and the dwarven kingdom of Ammarindar , destroying them both.
Jhingleshod was the former man-at-arms to the wizard Wulgreth of Ascalhorn , and became an undead knight.

Physical description Edit He was covered from head to toe in exotic plate mail and draped himself in an old forest green tunic and cloak.
