Appearance. Khalkaroth, in his natural form, appears to be a
dark-skinned, muscular man from a distance. Up close, this analogy falls apart
very quickly. From the black coiled horns to his clawed fists to the red,
glowing eyes, it is very apparent that this beast is not of natural origin.
Khalkaroth has also been known to transform into a black
warg, a black hart, and a
black-clothed, black-skinned muscular giant. Darkness appears to be the beast's
Special Abilities. The abilities of Khalkaroth, which he had shown during several occasions in the past centuries, have been catalogued by the wizards of Ximax over the years, but most of their data comes from the recovered notes of the dark mage Gamzan the Blasphemer, the only being ever known to have been able to summon and control the beast without being killed instantly.

Khalkaroth also has a terrifying blend of Ecuá magic and dark clerical powers, allowing him to wreak unholy miracles wherever he may go. The most dramatic use of these powers that is recorded is the Xaramonian Shadowstorm of where Khalkaroth used all the formidable powers of the Black Tower of Ximax to augment his own, creating a terrifying storm of darkness that covered nearly the entire peninsula of Xaramon.
History/Origin. Khalkaroth is one of the original High Demons of Coór, an incarnation of an aspect of the Darkwinds. Khalkaroth was the aspect of Shadow, and as such held great power over the night, Ecuá, and the powers that would some day far in the future be classified by the Dark Elves of Fá'áv'cál'âr as Moh'dél'cár'áll, or Black Aura Magic. From his very creation, along with his siblings, Khalkaroth was one of the greatest warriors of Coór, released whenever possible to wreak havoc on the inhabitants of Caelereth. However, the best-known period in the monster's history is his summoning, subjugation, and service under Gamzan the Blasphemous...
