Founded as a city-fortress during the hubris of the First Mendevian Crusade, Drezen was overtaken by the demonic hordes of the Worldwound. Now it stands as a demonic monument to the foolish naivety of those early crusaders. Drezen was overwhelmed in 4638 AR,as a wave of raw chaos washed over the city turning most of its citizens into hideous beast-men creatures who turned on each other in a wave of cannibalistic fury. After the slaughter finally stopped the corpses were taken from the city then into the ice cliffs that mark the Crown of the World, from these corpses arose the foul winter wraiths who are capable of freezing a man dead with but a touch. The city itself fared little better, its once proud crusader shrine, dedicated to Iomedae, Sarenrae and the other crusader deities, is now a perverse mockery dedicated to foul Demon Lords and home to thousands of demons. The city is now led by one of the most ruthless demonic generals of the Worldwound, the bloodthirsty marilith commander Zuhra Aponavicius.
