Abrogail Thrune II
Her Infernal Majestrix, Queen Abrogail II of the Thrice-Damned House of Thrune, has been the undisputed ruler of Cheliax since 4709 ar, when her predecessor, Infrexus, fell through the ice on the Adivian River and drowned. Since Abrogail’s ascension to the throne, rumors have persisted that the young woman is immature, petty, and spoiled; in reality, she is a ruthless and effective monarch, ruling the country with brutality and finesse, much like her great-grandmother and namesake, Abrogail I. In fact, Abrogail II may just be the most devious and intelligent Thrune ever to wear the crown of Cheliax. Although she receives the guidance and support of Hell, in the form of both the pit fiend Gorthoklek (who served Abrogail I in the same capacity) and the erinyes Contessa Lrilatha, it is clear that it is Abrogail, and not the lords of the Pit, who rules Cheliax.
Abrogail deals with her enemies swiftly, sending legions of erinyes to apprehend traitors or remove threats. Against those who have personally wronged her, the queen is fond of using petrification magic, bringing her defeated foes to the Imperial Palace in Egorian where they remain forever under the watchful eyes of her loyal guards and advisors. Abrogail displays these statues as a constant reminder to those in the court of a traitor’s fate: an eternity in stone under her control, beyond either the rewards of Hell or the mercy of Heaven.
