Zoyvegkk Uup is an alien, of a strange race called The Drarth. His natural form is a shapeless blob. He can extrude pseudopods, and can even assume a vaguely humanoid shape when required, but he has to use psionics for senses, communication and fine manipulation.

Although there are others of his race living in remote parts of Kalyr, Zoyvegkk Uup is not himself a native, but was sent to Kalyr by some outside agency on a mission which involved some kind of investigation into the activities of The Academy of Life. Quite what that mission was, or even the name and origin of that outside agency is forgotten. Even to Zoyvegkk Uup, for he has forgotten.

Somewhere, and somehow, he ended up in a titanic battle involving both a kandar wizard and a skilled martial artist. The battle left Zoyvegkk’s two opponents dead, but Zoyvegkk himself seriously brain-burned. The pain turned him, never that stable in the first place, seriously insane, even by the standards strange standards of his race.

Zoyvegkk is now a serial killer, preying on the Academy of Life, and anyone who he suspects of serving them. Many of those he’s killed are innocents who had no links with the Academy.

He has many ways of killing. Sometimes he attacks physically, lashing out with pseudopods in all directions, using martial arts knowledge subsumed from the martial artist he fought. Sometimes he kills by Telekinesis alone. Sometimes he mind-controls his victims, forcing them to kill one another. Sometimes he mindswitches from victim to victim, channelling his martial arts skills through kandar and human bodies.
