Sepulchral Warden was once the Lord Marshal of Shadespire, but in undeath he leads Sepulchral Guard to defend the city. He has been gifted with strange necromantic powers by Nagash, causing his followers to be inspired with frenzied devotion. He is the greatest amongst the faithful that petition the Great Necromancer for freedom, and will slay all who would challenge the will of the God of Death.
According to Shadespire: the Last Days by Palento Herst, he had called upon the other Katophranes to make peace with the Undying King but was instead crucified at the highest point of the South Wall of the City. [3a]
The Harvester is armed with an Boneshiver Spear or Ancient Spear. This is paired with a Crypt Shield, a type of ancient relic shields that was often kept in tombs and barrows.[2a][3a][3b] [2d][4a][4b]
|You were fools to defy Nagash - soon the whole city will be his.

Great Nagash opened our eyes. Life is a curse. Death is a gift. ~ The Sepulchral Warden.[2b]
The Faneway was a symbol of our arrogant decadence. Never again shall we believe ourselves beyond the grasp of fate. ~ The Sepulchral Warden.[2c]
